Location: Kimberley Region, Dampier Peninsular (218km north-east of Broome)
Traditional Country: Bardi and Jawi
Began PaL:  2011


Ardyaloon community started off utilising PaL resources in their playgroup as a way of ensuring that children attending had quality educational resources and centre staff were able to structure activities around solid information on how children learn.

The program was originally delivered at the Women’s Group/ Playgroup ensuring that parents were engaged in the program and comfortable with use of the resources. Once confident they were able to further develop their skills using the resources at home with their children.

Save the Children are now responsible for the delivery of PaL in the Dampier Peninsula.
