Learning language in the early years
1 Aug 2019

Sunday the 4 August is National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day. It has been observed on that date for more than 30 years.

In 2019, Children’s Day is ‘celebrating the early years, and promoting the importance of early years education and care for our little ones.’

And in this, the International Year of Indigenous Languages, what better way to preserve and protect Indigenous language than teaching it to children in their early years.

Watch this happening at the Cullunghutti Aboriginal Child and Family Centre on the South Coast of NSW.

Setting apart a day to celebrate children is one way a society values the nurture, protection and education of the next generation, an endeavour crucial to the survival of any society.
