Gowrie Australia is a national consortium of State-based Lady Gowrie Child Centres.

The Gowrie Australia Mission: A national collaborative approach to better practices which benefit children, families and the children’s services sector.

There is a Gowrie centre in each State providing a range of services including:

  • Child care and education
  • Professional development
  • Nationally Recognised Training for early childhood practitioners
  • Resource development
  • Family support programs
  • Resource centres
  • Library services

In 2010, Gowrie Australia wrote and published Assessment in the Early Years, a resource that draws on the Early Years Learning Framework – a national guide for early childhood educators.

The consortium meets on a regular basis to share best practice and to undertake the editorial role for the quarterly Gowrie Australia publication Reflections. Click here to access the Reflections archive
