Indi Kindi team leader invited to advise on early childhood and care policy

Congratulations to Indi Kindi Tennant Creek Team Leader Warumungu / Wambaya woman Keara Baker-Storey on being appointed as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representative on the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Policy Partnership established by the Joint Council on Closing the Gap.

The ECCD Policy Partnership will focus on:

  • Ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children (0-5 years) are born healthy and
    remain strong, nurtured by strong families and thrive in their early years; and
  • Ensuring children’s safety and care in family and addressing the impacts of child protection systems on children’s health, wellbeing and development.

Catherine Liddle, CEO of SNAICC – National Voice for our Children will co-chair the policy partnership.

Keara will take part in a joined-up approach to the early childhood care and development policy area including improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s early childhood outcomes.

Keara recently celebrated her first 12 months with Indi Kindi. She has been a driving force for establishing Indi Kindi in the Tennant Creek region. She has shown great dedication to promoting learning, health and wellbeing, bringing language and local traditions to Indi Kindi’s sessions with a strong focus on connecting children to their community and Country.

“Being a team leader and working while being a mum and a friend, I didn’t know I could do that but now I do,” said Keara.
