Not for profit

Child Australia is a not for profit organisation dedicated to improving outcomes for children by providing quality initiatives and services to professionals, the community, parents and children.

With humble beginnings in 1987 (known then as the “Resource Unit for Children with Special Needs” or RUCSN) with an original objective to include children with disabilities into child care services, we have grown significantly and now offer a wide range of programs and services to improve outcomes for all children.
