  • The Royal Children’s Hospital Education Institute is committed to providing a rich learning experience for children and young people so that their journey as learners continues in hospital. We aim to make the transition from hospital back to school or kindergarten as seamless as possible by keeping students connected to their regular learning environment and their peers.

    Research tells us that children who miss school due to a health condition or prolonged or frequent stays in hospital are at risk of disengaging from formal education.

    To inspire children’s interest and curiosity as learners, our teachers create vibrant learning spaces and personalised learning opportunities on wards, outpatient areas and other locations across the hospital. Our teaching and learning program is steeped in a strong evidence-base of proven approaches to engaging children and young people in learning, with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, taught through the lens of the creative arts.

    The RCH Education Institute works in partnership with RCH departments, clinicians and allied health professionals in a holistic model of patient care.

    The Education Institute is funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD).
