About Northern Children's Network
Welcome to NCN , read on to find out about us
Northern Children's Network (NCN) is a 'Not for Profit', community focussed child care service provider.
NCN is committed to providing Tasmanian families access to child care that is not only high quality, but most importantly, fun for children.
We are devoted to providing Tasmanian families with access to child care throughout the state. We offer employment opportunities for budding
Family Day Care and In Home Care educators, and, most of all, we are here to make sure children have a fun and safe place to play and grow into confident learners.
NCN commenced in 1975 as a small child care service and has grown to become the largest provider of Family Day Care in the state.
This has been an amazing journey that has seen us go through a name change, a huge increase in services and staff, plus a presence
that is known and respected state-wide. We continue to work closely with both rural and regional communities’, focusing on supporting their individual needs in relation to child care.
In 2011, due to enormous demand for home based child care in the South of the state, we opened up our sister office – Southern Childcare Services (SCS).
SCS has now grown beyond our expectations, and is considered an important part of the southern community offering flexible home based child care (Family Day Care and In Home Care services)
We currently support approximately 250 registered educators and innumerable families, plus provide employment for 100 staff.
Our Long Day Care Centres operate in the rural communities of Beaconsfield, Bicheno, Campbell Town, Triabunna, Queenstown, Scottsdale, St Marys,
and Flinders Island. Exciting and fun-packed After School Care and School Holiday Care programs are available at most of these centres.
Both After School and School Holiday programs are also available at Amy Road, Newstead, and After School Care at Invermay Primary School.
At the heart of everything, we have a simple goal, to help create confident children, whether it be through group play,
learning and growth, having fun with their friends, or just exploring.
In October 2013, NCN and SCS were proud recipients of the Business Enterprise Award, which is part of the statewide Business Achievement Awards
