Northern Adelaide Senior College (NASC) teachers work in partnership with support agencies and expecting parent(s) to help them maintain their studies whilst juggling the daily pressures of caring for a family.
Our Family Learning Centre is a space designed specifically for the needs of parents and their small children.
Lessons are focussed around topics relevant for families where young babies are present and can be attended to throughout classes. Our programs aim to re-engage and maintain student engagement in education to improve educational and social outcomes for the whole family. Our hope is to help re-connect parents to learning and prepare them for future studies, before they embark on a SACE pathway with NASC.
Support for young mums
We offer a range of support services for our mums (or mums-to-be), including:
- a midwife available at our antenatal clinic for expecting mums
- extra support for young mums through our relationship with the Lyell McEwin Hospital
- crèche facilities to provide a safe, caring and happy learning environment for children aged 1 week to 4 years.
The crèche is free and runs during class times. Parents are asked to supply nappies and food for their children.
Students must book crèche care in advance to secure a place.
