F4L - Foundations For Learning
Foundations for Learning (F4L) is a free service that supports families/whānau in the Mataura, Charlton, Kaiwera, Edendale, Wyndham and Fortrose Communities, with 3 to 4 year old children/tamariki who are not participating in centre or home-based early childhood education.
F4L coordinators help families/ whānau to engage their children/tamariki in early learning at home or at an ECE service of their choice.
The F4L programme supports children/tamariki and their families/whānau from 3 years old until 12 weeks after their enrolment at school.
