The Federal government’s parenting app is getting a refresh in time for the school holidays – with hundreds of articles, activity suggestions and advice to help families with children of all ages.
“As a dad I know what it can feel like to be looking for guidance but not wanting to sift through some of the dubious parenting advice you find on the internet.” -Federal Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham
The Learning Potential app has been downloaded around 118,000 times since it launched in August last year, and uses the latest national and international research to help parents in their role as the first teachers in any child’s life. It gives parents ways to easily tap and share advice, tips and ideas on being actively involved in their child’s learning and to ultimately help boost their child’s personal skills and education outcomes.
Federal Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham said the app offered parents trusted advice for any of the burning questions they had.

“As a dad I know what it can feel like to be looking for guidance but not wanting to sift through some of the dubious parenting advice you find on the internet,” said Minister Birmingham.
“Our Learning Potential app helps fill that gap of trusted advice and helps encourage parents to try new ways of engaging with their children.”
