PaL initially began in Bamaga in the Safe House with Childcare workers using the program and resources with children in their care.

Gradually, families in the broader community were introduced to PaL and enrolled to begin using the program with their children. PaL is now working in partnership with the Bamaga Junior School through the Pre Prep classroom to deliver the program to enrolled families.
