Giving a brighter future to Indigenous children

The Centre for Child Development and Education is committed to providing leadership and driving change to improve the lives of Indigenous and non-Indigenous children through better health, education and wellbeing.

The Centre develops, implements and evaluates programs to improve early childhood development, and we also aim to influence policy and practice reforms in child health, child care, education, family support and child protection. 

Developmental health is an emerging field in early childhood research which reaches across disciplines to study all of the factors  that influence the wellbeing and life.
