“Every thinking person must realise that when this bitter strife is over, we must build a better world, and it’s only through children that this can be done.” Lady Zara Gowrie, 1941.

Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Lady Gowrie Child Centres in 1940 by Lady Zara Gowrie, the wife of the 10th Governor General.

Gowrie NSW Clemton Park Early Education and Care officially opened for children on the 29th of May 2017. The centre has been newly refurnished and resourced, offering a nurturing environment for the children. Gowrie NSW Clemton Park Early Education and Care has a strong focus on supporting children to develop respectful relationships, exploration of the natural environment and building curiosity through a play-based approach.

In Element 3.22 of the National Quality Standard it states that “resources, materials and equipment are sufficient” and “allow for multiple uses”. Element 3.3.2 also requires that children are supported to become environmentally responsible and show respect for the environment.
