The Ngroo "Walking Together" program aims to help community preschools and long day care centres build positive relationships with their local Aboriginal community and reduce barriers that may prevent Aboriginal children accessing centres.

The program combines cultural education training, a cultural audit, an action plan and Ngroo’s staff support for services to prepare to respectively engage with the local Aboriginal community to increase enrolments for each child to attend 600 hours per year.

Not-for-profit community preschools and long day care centres in NSW wishing to be involved can submit an expression of interest with NSW Department of Education through Smarty Grants.
