At UnitingCare, we know each child is unique and precious. And we know it can be a difficult decision to choose childcare. This is why we take into account the worries and needs of parents to provide high-quality childcare that makes a difference to the lives of those who use our services.


Parents want their children to enjoy their days at childcare – to grow and develop, as well as make new friends. We offer a wide range of learning activities to stimulate children and foster social, physical, language, emotional and intellectual development.


Our childcare services aim to support parents as their children develop as healthy, thoughtful and responsible young people, and foster a sense of belonging and becoming, to help children participate in society.


Our commitment to childcare


Our commitment to quality childcare extends beyond just caring for children. We promote children’s rights through respecting positive aspects of each child’s culture, family values and abilities. We build relationships with parents to understand the individual needs of their children and tailor learning plans to build on and challenge each child’s developmental needs.

Where we are

Our childcare centres are located at Toombul and Forest Lake in Brisbane, and Rockhampton in Central Queensland.
