The PaL program is being delivered by the Puuya Foundation through their Kuunchi Kakana (Families Together) Team.

The Puuya Foundation works collaboratively with local community members and early childhood learning providers to increase attendance and participation of parents / carers and young children in early years learning.

PaL now operates from the newly established Kuunchi Kakana –Families Together Centre, the early childhood hub of the community. Embedding the program in this environment strengthens the sustainability of the program for the long term.
