Equity and excellence is our vision for a progressive, high performing education system realising the potential of every student.
One of our priority areas is Starting Strong where Early Childhood sets critical foundations for wellbeing and learning through quality early childhood education and early years services. Our commitment is to support families, early childhood education and care services and schools to positively transition children from home to quality early learning services, kindergarten and schools.
We are giving all children a great start through free kindergarten, engaging young people in learning, creating safe and inclusive workplaces and investing in communities for a stronger Queensland. https://education.qld.gov.au/

The Benevolent Society
At the Benevolent Society, we believe everyone – young and old – should be able to live their best life. That is why our teams have been helping to support Australian families for more than 200 years. We provide learning and development care to help children and parents thrive through play and specialist programs such as: Early Years Centres, community events, Early Childhood Education Centres, child and family psychology, occupational therapy, specialist case management, and other allied health support. Our teams provide help every step of the way as every child’s situation is unique and strive to build nurturing and caring foundations for all families involved.
At Mission Australia we are a ‘Partner in the Community’ for the NDIS.
The Early Childhood Service supports children aged 0 to 6 years with permanent and significant disability and/or developmental delays and their families to access early intervention supports and services under the NDIS.
Our Local Area Coordinators (LACs) help people with permanent/significant disability aged 7 to 64 years to understand and access the NDIS and develop and use their NDIS plan. We also work more broadly with our local communities to increase accessibility and inclusivity and share info/resources to build capacity of people with disability and/or developmental delays to access NDIS/non-NDIS (mainstream/community) supports and services across the region.
