Exciting News: Our 3-Year Strategic Plan Unveiled!

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new Strategic Plan, and we owe a huge thank you to everyone who helped shape it!

 Our Focus:

  Birth to Three Matters: Those first three years are vital for children’s lifelong health, well-being, and learning. Positive experiences now build a strong foundation for their future.

People, Capability, and Culture: Our team is dedicated to doing their best for children and families. To make it happen, we’ll retain and bring in talented professionals and ensure a great workplace.

Organisational Excellence Transforms: Equipping our team with tools and tech will improve communication, benefiting children and families. Partnering with other agencies will ensure our success lasts.

This isn’t just a plan— it’s our promise to work together for positive change. With your support, we’re creating a world where children and families thrive in safe, connected communities.

Hazelwood yard opening

At Hazelwood we are thrilled that our outdoor renovations have been completed. Our aim was to create a beautiful, natural space for the children to explore and investigate. We have now incorporated natural elements such as sandstone blocks, a wattle tree and a veggie patch, as well as a Gunya hut, water pump, a handcrafted xylophone, and more!
The partnerships to make this project happen are a wonderful example of the Blue Mountains community working together. The educators, families and children are so excited to see this project completed and look forward to many days spent outside enjoying the space.
We thank the Department of Education and Trish Doyle MP for supporting our Community Building Partnership application, and for providing the funding to enable us to provide our children with a new outdoor environment. We also thank Belong Assist for all of their hard work and for bringing our vision to life.
