Dual Generational Approach
We passionately foster a holistic 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.
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 succeed.
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 have two campuses located in Waratah and Wyong, providing flexible learning environments set within the Young Parents' Hub which provides an ecosystem of partnerships to empower and equip young parents to thrive.
Narnia Young Parents Early Learning provides onsite early education for their children whilst they study, with co-located agencies and a network of community services that engage with young parents to minimise the barriers toward successfully completing their education. 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 or a meaningful career pathway.
