SWAY is an oral language and early literacy program based on local Aboriginal language and yarns within the early learning environment.

Our main aims are to:

  • Improve the oral language and literacy outcomes of children within rural and remote communities.
  • Support teachers to implement evidence-based oral language strategies within the early learning environment.
  • Develop children’s knowledge and appreciation of local Aboriginal history and culture through the use of local Aboriginal yarns and language.
  • Support teachers with embedding local Aboriginal perspectives into engaging play-based learning experiences.
