Our Reach

Nurture Families applies early childhood focused expertise and on-the-ground experience in programme development, delivery and research to optimise and scale our work. We are here to create impact for the greatest number of children, families and educators.

Consistent, predictable and responsive relationships are fundamental to infant mental health. Early relationships set a template for how babies begin to think about themselves and others. These relationships along with safe and secure environments, nutrition, health-promoting behaviours and enriching early education experiences serve as the early foundations of lifelong health and wellbeing.
We develop and deliver innovative research-informed programmes that build a quality early childhood workforce with knowledge and skills in family support, enabling policymakers to build equitable systems.
We connect and collaborate with community providers that put families first, advancing knowledge and shared progress.
We reached 1000+ children through our direct service and through our professional development programmes
We reached 190+ professionals through our professional development programmes
We reached 1020+ parents through our direct service and through our outreach and professional development programmes

How We Measure Our Impact

To ensure our approach to advancing early education and care is working, we track what matters. We monitor how many children, families and early childhood professionals we are reaching. We also consider the wider context of our work to make sure we are asking the right questions, taking a place-based approach that looks at the quality of the outcomes that result from our work. This approach is comprehensive and at the heart of everything we do and how we improve life outcomes for children, families, and our communities.

"There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. Some of us need to go upstream and find out why they are falling in."

- Desmond Tutu
