Help Alithia to launch a first-of-its-kind leaning environment for children aged 5-12. These are the years when an individual's perception of themselves in an academic, creative and social setting is formed. Their internal voice is developing, creating the scaffolding for future learning, motivation and passion. Children need strong foundations, with a sense of capability and engagement.


Families will be supported to raise children who communicate, connect and collaborate with a high level of understanding, clarity and compassion. This is a long term goal with the opportunity of creating real change in the way parents/families and the educational system in Australia approach learning and socialisation of children.


What we're doing, why it's important, and where your money will go.
