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.

10 years of Heatherbrae!!

What better way to finish Chldren’s Week than with our 10th Birthday 🥳 Celebration for Heatherbrae!
A fabulous morning filled with joy and new and familiar faces, to recognise this fantastic program and the positive impact Heatherbrae has made to our local community, families and children over the last 10 years!!
In the previous financial year, 354 families came to visit, play and connect at Heatherbrae ❤️ A majority of the children visiting were under 3 years old, this is why we know #birthtothreematters to support the best outcomes for our families and children.
Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate 🎉 and our incredible Heatherbrae team, both past and present, who have done such meaningful work.
