Anti-bias in children's services

In our children's services we practice anti-bias policy. This promotes an environment which encourages non-discriminatory behaviour towards children of any race, ability, religion, language, family structure or any other aspects of life. 

We encourage families of children with disabilities to contact us to discuss their needs for enrolment in our services. 


For more information, contact Council's Manager Children Services on 9789 9429.​​​
