Playing is not only a child'sright, it is also proven to have significantly positive effects on early childhood development.

We need you to give these children an experience of quality early childhood education, to develop theirappetite for learning and help enable a smooth transition into school.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We've been working with families and communities in Victoria as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Victoria is available here.
