Looking to the future, continued growth will ensure Gowrie NSW remains responsive and adaptive in an ever changing landscape to be significant and sustainable into the future.

Our history

Over the past 75 years, Gowrie NSW has positioned itself as a vital part of the early childhood sector, due to our special and unique way of providing quality education and care as well as our ability to respond to major social, economic, and political changes that have occurred over time. The past decade in particular has brought an expansion of professional development opportunities for staff. With a focus on research and exploring new areas of practice, Gowrie NSW has always been at the forefront of work in early education and care.

Our commitment to reconciliation

Gowrie NSW is strongly committed to reconciliation and recognises the special place that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people hold within Australia and acknowledges that they are the first people of the land we share today.

We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as enduring, living cultures and pay our respects to Elders, past and present.

Our children are our greatest hope... every thinking person must realise that when this bitter strife is over we must build up a better world, and it is only through the children that this can be done.

- Lady Zara Gowrie
