Building resilience in Tasmanian families

WORKSHOPS

The B4 Early Years Coalition (B4) is an initiative of the Tasmanian Government and was launched in August 2016 with the name B4  representing the early years of a child’s life from pregnancy to age four. As a collective impact initiative, B4 connects, supports, engages with, and encourages, individuals and organisations to work  together to ensure all children in Tasmania in the early years, reach their potential. From the very moment a life begins, a child’s experiences and environments will shape their lifelong learning, health and development. 

Why the early years?

To get the best start in life, children need

Early years nutrition

Play based Learning

Storytelling and singing

Loving and secure Relationships

A sense of beloging
