Summary of activities

The objective of the organisation is to provide education and care to families and children who are disadvantaged and at risk. We provide emergency child care and relief for children under at risk circumstances such as under child protection orders, domestic violence, drug and alcohol situations and from financially vulnerable families. Our RTO offers Certificate II in Community Services free of charge to those on social benefits struggling to obtain employment. We also assist immigrant families recently arrived in our our community from war torn countries, by assisting their children to transition into school. We provide safe, secure playgroups where parents learn English and the children are engaged in play based learning activities. We also invest in Indigenous Initiatives with our RAP, playgroups, yarning circles and a collaborative community approach to encourage increased Indigenous children and parent engagement in early years learning.
