BUILDING INFORMED CONFIDENT PARENTS

WELCOME TO VPC

VPC is a registered not for profit charity providing information, representation and a collective voice to those supporting children in education. VPC informs, encourages, supports and responds to the needs of all parents, current, past and future, including non-government school parents, in Victoria and beyond. VPC strives to give parents the knowledge, resources and confidence to take an active role in their children's schooling and provides the vital link between parents, government, education authorities and the media.

Since 1959 VPC has helped parents, carers and educators to learn, grow and develop a sense of community. We welcome parents, educators and aligned businesses to become members of our vibrant online community.

GET INVOLVED

Education is the key to so many doors for every child. As we grow from birth to adulthood, and even beyond, our schooling experience will determine to a large extent the pathways that are available for social, learning and career development. Yet that development takes many hands, many forms.

The saying is that it takes a village to raise a child. This is true now more than ever, yet we are often isolated as the nuclear family is less common, the generational support that was once common now less likely.

In today’s society, VPC helps to provide the village on and offline for all parents, educators, businesses and anyone who wants to help raise and educate our children.
