Profile: Kath Dickson Family Centre

Kath Dickson Family Centre is a not-for-profit, community-based organisation that focuses on the wellbeing of families and children, specifically in the crucial early years of childhood, from 0-5 years.

We were established in 1975, by Miss Kathleen Dickson BEM and Dr John Irvine.

The organisation operates a number of distinct divisions:
Kath Dickson Family Day Care continues to provide the community with affordable, flexible, quality child care in a nurturing, family home environment.
Kath Dickson Education and Care Centre in Gladstone Street and Toowoomba

In 1996, we began training the next generation of early childhood educators with the opening of our Registered Training Organisation. Kath Dickson Institute provides training in nationally accredited qualifications via our network of trainers throughout Queensland. The Institute also provides professional development sessions and networking opportunities for the early childhood sector.
In addition, we coordinate a range of community programs to support families and children.
