Creating equitable learning pathways for children and families.
The City of Melton continues to lead the way in utilising learning as a key driver for change, by ensuring all Melton citizens have equitable access to learning opportunities that enable individual empowerment, build social cohesion and drive economic development, cultural prosperity and sustainable development for our city.
We are always searching for ways to improve the lives of our residents and to engage families in the growth of our learning city.
The Global Family Research Project has a long history and an established track record in defining and advancing the fields of family, school, and community engagement. They work across boundaries—with early childhood and after-school organisations, schools, digital media, libraries, museums, and others working on behalf of children and families—to ensure that families are empowered in children’s learning, from early childhood to young adulthood.
They encourage global connections by lifting up and sharing innovative family and community engagement strategies, research, and practices.
This is a recent video from their work on learning pathways – something that Melton City Council is committed to further developing in our City.
Meet Mateo and experience his learning pathway, from birth to college.
Experience the Ecology of Learning, our vision for all children and families—especially those with the greatest needs.
An ecology of learning includes the places and interactions that offer opportunities for learning, development, and achievement throughout a person’s life.
This environment inspires exploration, creativity, connections with others, and support in mastering skills at home, and in school, the community, and digital spaces.
Watch this fun video that helps to explain learning pathways and how families can support their child to achieve their dreams.
