Education Institute

  • 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.

    The Education Institute is funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
