Ronald McDonald Learning Program (RMLP)

The Ronald McDonald Learning Program (RMLP) aims to bridge the gap for school aged students, from kindergarten to Year 12, whose education is disrupted due to serious illness or injury.

The RMLP is tailored to each students’ individual needs, assisting them to catch up on missed education following treatment and recovery. From improving numeracy and literacy skills, to identifying learning strengths and areas of need, the RMLP aims to make the journey back to school as smooth as possible, while also providing a much needed confidence boost.

The RMLP looks at all aspects of a child’s learning,  providing a suite of support which can include comprehensive assessment, tuition and allied health therapies with qualified professionals. Each program is tailored depending upon the child’s needs, location and family situation.

Who is eligible to use the Ronald McDonald Learning Program (RMLP)?

The primary goal of the RMLP is to assist school-aged children, from kindergarten to Year 12, with serious illness or injury to catch up on their learning.

Your family does not have to have stayed in a Ronald McDonald House for you to be eligible to apply for the RMLP for a school-aged child.


We understand that having kids who are sick or injured can put families under financial pressure. That's why the RMLP is free for eligible families.

What's covered?

Most children will receive up to 40 hours (i.e. four school terms) of one-on-one tuition with a qualified and registered teacher, along with speech and/or occupational therapy if required and a psychometric assessment with an educational psychologist.
