The Love of Learning Program was developed by The Pyjama Foundation to empower children in Foster Care with learning, life skills and confidence to change the direction of their lives.
Our Program is the only service of its type supporting children in care with evidence-based literacy and numeracy programs in the out-of-school environment in Australia.
Volunteers, known as ‘Pyjama Angels’, are screened, trained, recruited and then matched with a child in Foster Care. Together, they spend an hour a week reading books aloud, playing educational games and engaging in fun activities. A Pyjama Angel’s role is to provide consistent love and support, and most importantly, instil a love of learning in children.
Pyjama Angels give a Foster Child the chance to find their wings and reach their life potential, despite a fragile start.
The Pyjama Foundation has a resource library in every region where volunteers can borrow books, games and resources to take to the children each week. This is a free service.
