Learning Links works in collaboration with schools, early childhood settings and parents to help children with learning disabilities and difficulties.
Early intervention for young children who experience developmental delays is critical to mitigate the risk of poor educational outcomes later in life. Learning Links is recognised as a pioneer in the area of inclusive early childhood education. At their inclusive preschool, children of all abilities learn side by side, maximising their learning abilities and wellbeing as they progress to primary school.

In April 2017, we presented Learning Links with a charitable donation to help support their Counting for Life program.
The Counting for Life program, helps children in years three to five, who are struggling and falling behind in their numeracy development. This donation will assist 50 children across five Australian schools to regain confidence in numeracy, and enhance their self-esteem as learners.
In addition to our monetary donation to Learning Links' Counting for Life program, a select group of staff volunteers will also offer their time and support as Counting Buddies.
As a Counting Buddy, CMC Markets staff will work with children experiencing learning difficulties and disabilities over the 10 week program. This is a great opportunity for staff to give back to local schools and help the kids reach their full potential.
CMC Markets' Corporate Social Responsibility committee will also be organising and participating in a variety of events to help raise further funds for Learning Links and their great programs.
