We are a bilingual setting that uses both Auslan, the language of the Deaf community, and English. We value both Auslan and English equally. We also acknowledge and value the language that each child uses at home with their family.
We work in partnership with families, building on their child’s individual needs, strengths, and competencies to support them to reach their full potential. We offer Early Intervention, Early Education and an inclusive 3 – 4 year old Community Kindergarten.
Our highly trained team of professionals includes Teachers of the Deaf, Deaf Educators, Teacher Assistants, Speech Pathologists, Social Workers, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Audiologists Physiotherapists, and Interpreters.
This is available to families of Victorian children from birth to school entry who have a confirmed hearing loss in both ears. We work in partnership with families, providing regular home visits and group sessions.
We offer school-based programs to children aged 3 – 6 years old, who have a confirmed moderate to profound bilateral hearing loss, and children who are deafblind.
