The early years in a child’s life are important and can set them up for a healthy and happy adulthood. Parents, family and community all play a key role in creating a supportive and nurturing environment to encourage early childhood development.

There are nine Aboriginal Child and Family Centres (ACFCs) in NSW which provide a mix of culturally safe services and supports for Aboriginal children aged 0 to 8 years and their families.

The centres will bring together a range of early childhood education and care, parent and family support, maternal and child health, supported playgroups and adult education opportunities.

The locations of the nine Aboriginal Child and Family Centres are listed below.
