COVID-19 update: Our Early Education and Care Centres and Family Day Care educators are currently operating as normal. Our Institute staff are continuing to train students and are accepting new enrolments. Playgroups, Toy Library and other events are closed until further notice.


Family Support

At Kath Dickson Family Centre, we offer a range of opportunities for families to interact with each other and other families. We also run programs to support the development of children.

Playing with your children is important to their growth and development - it is how children learn. Through both structured activities and free play, our playgroups and toy library offer children an opportunity explore their environments, develop their skills, and socialise with other children. Playgroups also offer friendship and support for parents, a place where you can share experiences, seek advice and enjoy the company of other parents.



Come along to one of our regular playgroups in Toowoomba, Dalby and Maroochydore for activities, friendship and fun.

Toy Library

Join the Kath Dickson Family Centre’s Community Toy Library in Toowoomba and you’ll have access to over 1,000 toys for 0-5 year olds.


Car Seat Installations

Even the most advanced seat won't provide the protection you need if it isn't installed properly. Contact us to check and fit your child's car seat.

Complete a one-day first aid course with us to gain the confidence and skills to respond to emergencies in an early childhood setting.
