SDN Children’s Services is a not-for-profit organisation that has been providing quality early childhood education and care and disability services for children since 1905. We are proud of our long history in the provision of children’s services and teacher education.
SDN is one of only a few community-based organisations that has been operating in Australia for more than 110 years. SDN has survived many challenges, including two world wars and the Great Depression, and grown into one of Australia’s most respected children’s services organisations. SDN is overseen by a Board of Directors and the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Leadership Team, who are qualified and experienced professionals.
SDN formally acknowledges the unique position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and custodians of the land. We pay our respect to Elders, past and present.
