LEARNING PROGRAM Ronald McDonald
The Ronald McDonald Learning Program has been heavily researched and custom designed to help children that are suffering, or are recovering from, serious illness to catch up on their learning. Managed by Ronald McDonald House Charities, the program provides one-on-one tutoring with a qualified teacher to help children catch up on missed education and to assist them in reintegrating back into the school environment
EDMED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Planning for the return of a child that has suffered a serious illness can present challenges and questions for teaching staff. Our free, one-hour professional development session, accredited by the NSW Institute of Teachers, provides a range of information and educational strategies to help smooth the transition and integration back into school.
