Families as First Teachers
Families as First Teachers (FaFT) acknowledges the important role families play as their child’s first teacher.
FaFT delivers quality early learning and parent support programs to young children and their families. It develops place-based programs to engage families and communities, and build parents’ capacity to give their children the best start in life.
The aim of FaFT is to improve the lifelong education, health and wellbeing outcomes for young Northern Territory children and their families.
