Early Child Hood Development

Latrobe Health Assembly

Ninety Mile Consulting (NMC) have recently completed their support of the Early Childhood and Development (ECD) project with the Latrobe Health Assembly (LHA). What started out as a project with the aim of developing prototypes for improving childhood wellbeing, evolved to be a much larger project that dissected Latrobe Valley childhood data, identified challenges and existing services across the region to design a program that would create long term positive impact in the community.

The refocusing of the project expanded the scope to provide the Health Assembly with the ability to develop and achieve short-term (6 months), medium-term (5 years), and long-term (10 years) outcomes.

The outcome was a tailored ECD LHA Five Pillar Framework that mapped goals, health data, identified challenges, exisiting services, and desired outcomes, that impact children across the 0-8 year range within the Latrobe Valley. NMC developed five Logic Maps which were utilised to map all project findings across the different age groups.
