Dual Generational Approach
We offer a dual generational approach to supporting our young parents and their children. As the young parent studies in their classroom, the children are also learning and developing skills in a stimulating and nurturing environment in the Early Learning Centre.
DALE Young Parents has been operating since 2000, initially as a Young Mothers’ Program, designed to meet the need of young mother’s wanting to complete their education while parenting, but found the barriers too challenging to continue.
In 2016, the DALE Young Mothers' Program transitioned to SPCC DALE Young Parents and became a registered and accredited Special Assistance School for young mums and dads. We are now know as Young Parents College.
We have two campuses located in Newcastle and on the Central Coast, providing flexible learning environments.
Narnia Young Parents Early Learning provides onsite early education for the children of our young parents. We partner with a number of organisations to provide support to our Young Parents. This collaborative model of dual generational, holistic education and parent support, ultimately results in a confident and school-ready child and a confident HSC graduate, with the skills and qualifications to continue on to tertiary education orient a career pathway.
