Passionate Minds continues to deliver services for children and families touched by Autism, Education and Family Support and Family Day Care across Queensland.
Our goal is to create awareness and to advocate for early intervention and our sense of belonging which begins in early childhood. We want to make a difference across a person’s life span.
The founding idea of becoming a Family Day Care Service was that there are many families who are potentially excluded from childcare because they have a child with additional or individual needs. Family Day Care is the perfect environment for all children including those with sensory challenges, trauma and other individual needs.
Passionate Minds has become established as a service who will support families and educators to meet the individual needs of all children. We have a dedicated Inclusion and Diversity Coordinator who works closely with our Educators and Families
We are the only KidsMatter Family Day Care Service. This Government initiative provides a platform for us to deliver services and support Mental Health and Well-being challenges for everyone who uses our service not just the Family Day Care.
In July 2016 we went through the State Government National Assessment and Rating process where we were acknowledged to be Exceeding in Partnerships with families and communities. We feel this reflects the work we have done and continue to do in establishing our commitment to our families and community.
Having expert team members is what really makes Passionate Minds. Our delivery model is very different to other autism and education services.
