Indigenous children's program

 

Overview

The Indigenous children's program at the Council for Aboriginal Alcohol Program Services (CAAPS) supports parents to participate in CAAPS programs and build parenting capacity.

Parents are encouraged to ensure their school aged children attend local schools and develop effective daily routines. Children who are not of school age participate in activities which develop school ready skills and routines, age appropriate protective behaviours as well as a range of fun activities.

Each child that participates in the children’s program has a developmental assessment to identify if further support is needed. The program also runs a homework centre twice a week for school aged children and provides participating children with protective behaviour education as well as providing school holiday programs throughout the year.
