Children and family centres

Early childhood services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families

Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families miss out on early childcare services, even though they stand to benefit the most. To help change this, the Queensland Government has partnered with the Australian Government to establish 10 children and family centres across the state.


Children and family centres connect with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and become a place where children and families feel comfortable while receiving the support that they need.
