Sponsored Childcare Placements



Kath Dickson Family Centre understands the many issues, challenges, and stresses currently facing families.  As a community organisation, our Vision is To advance the education and wellbeing of children, individuals, and families.  Our Childcare services are designed for families so they can continue to be gainfully employed, look for work, or undertake studies or training knowing their children are receiving quality education and care.  We know that some families are ineligible for the Federal Government’s Child Care Subsidies, and unable to afford full fees.  This may be for a number of reasons, including Residency Status, Visa Class, or unexpectedly in Toowoomba due to an illness/injury of a family member staying in hospital.


Established in 1975, Kath Dickson Family Centre is a not-for-profit community-based organisation.  We are offering a total of ten (10) full time equivalent childcare placements in our Toowoomba Central Centre (5 Jennings Street) during the fourth Queensland School Term of 2020 (6th October 2020 – 11th December 2020).  To ensure we are able to assist as many families as possible, each individual placement will be capped at a maximum of 2 days per week.
