Belconnen – A Village For Every Child

You’re welcome here

By improving collaboration and committing to community engagement, all children in Belconnen can be physically healthy, socially and emotionally strong, and ready to engage fully in learning and life.


The Belconnen – A Village for Every Child initiative puts children the heart of our community. Every child deserves the best start to life.

The first few years of life are critical to a child’s development. Positive experiences during early childhood (pre-birth to 5 years) promote strong social, emotional and cognitive development, as well as overall health and wellbeing.

It takes a Village to Raise a Child

The long-term goal of this initiative is to transform early childhood systems across Belconnen.

By working together, our community is stronger, more connected and better placed to meet the needs of children and families.
