About Kath Dickson Family Centre

Serving, protecting and empowering families for over 40 years.

The Kath Dickson Family Centre was founded in 1975 by Miss Kathleen Dickson BEM and Dr John Irvine.

Kath Dickson was a strong advocate for children throughout her career as a teacher and principal. After her retirement, Kath worked tirelessly to establish quality care opportunities for children in regional Queensland. 

Today, thanks to her vision and determination, the Kath Dickson Family Centre has earned a reputation as ‘leaders of excellence’ and now manages Queensland’s largest family day care scheme as well as operating three early education centres, running community programs including playgroups and a toy library, and training the future generation of educators through our Institute.

We are a not-for-profit, community-based organisation that continues to grow and expand to meet the needs of children, families and communities. The operation remains the responsibility of the Board of Directors, comprising parent users, students and interested community members, to ensure we maintain our high status in the industry.

From our offices in Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast, as well as through our network of Institute trainers, we offer services throughout most of Queensland.
