Corio-Norlane Best Start

Best Start is a Victorian Government funded initiative which aims to improve the health, development and well-being of all children from before birth through transition to school (up to 8 years).

Best Start has a strong emphasis on prevention and early intervention, and has a particular focus on children experiencing vulnerability and all Aboriginal children. 

It is based on formal partnerships of local agencies and service providers that plan, deliver and monitor evidence-based strategies to improve outcomes for children.

The primary outcomes of the project are:

  • children engage and participate in early childhood education (kindergarten and supported playgroups)

  • children and families actively engage with Maternal and Child Health services, attending key ages and stages visits.
