An initiative of Communities for Children Bendigo

Joining together for Bendigo children to support early language and literacy development

By the time a child reaches five years old almost 90% of their brain has developed. Help switch on lights in their brain by reading, singing, talking and playing together every day.

About Us

C4C Bendigo is a partnership between various organisations, agencies, communities and families. A broad range of local children and family focused services and agencies work alongside C4C Bendigo to develop and implement strategic initiatives to further C4C outcomes.
