About Us

About Us

We are a committed team with diverse skills, training and experience in early childhood, development and disability.

We work together with you, your young child, (from birth to eight years of age), family and community to reach your goals.

We have been working with young children and families in the lower and upper Hunter for over 30 years and are respected for quality services reflecting evidence based best practice. The service is managed by a Committee which is elected annually, and is made up of parents and community representatives.
