about One Tree

About us

One Tree was established in 1973 to provide child care services.

We are a not-for-profit organisation with a volunteer Board of Management.

The decision was made that One Tree would extend our scope to focus on community services for individuals, families, children and vulnerable communities suffering poverty, ill health, homelessness, abuse, isolation or a lack of services

One Tree has extensive experience in early education and care and community services, and provides accredited training as a registered training organisation (RTO). 

In 2010 One Tree identified the lack of services for children and families in the communities we serve. One Tree decided to extend its scope to focus on community services for individuals, families, children and vulnerable communities suffering poverty, ill health, homelessness, abuse, isolation or a lack of services.

Today, One Tree has over 30 childcare and community centres and an RTO across Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Victoria, from metropolitan Perth to remote Aboriginal communities.As we established community services in vulnerable communities, the need to provide training and employment opportunities to alleviate poverty and to provide real opportunities for families brought about One Tree’s direction to become an RTO and offer accredited training and employment with a focus on skilling disadvantaged people.

One Tree’s RTO also provided our organisation opportunity to provide training to all of our staff to improve the quality of services to the communities we serve.
