One Tree Community Services works with people and communities to transform challenges into possibilities. Our strength is providing services in rural and remote areas, or challenging environments. We are a not-for-profit charity with over 60 services and 800 staff from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds.
We offer early education and care including long day care, out of school hours care and kindergartens. We are an approved and authorised Early Years Management (EYM) organisation operating stand alone three and four year old kindergarten programs.
We support communities with safe houses, domestic violence services, inclusion support and family support programs.
Registered Training Organisation
We are a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) offering free traineeships to our staff. We also offer school-based traineeships in Western Australia and the Northern Territory working in partnerships with local high schools and service providers.
We have established EduTribe, an online platform for early education and care professionals in Australia to connect, learn and find job opportunities.
- builds resilient individuals, families and communities; and
- relieves suffering by providing support, services, management and learning opportunities for organisations and people, including those disadvantaged by poverty, violence, illness, location or lack of high-quality services.
“Working with individuals, families and communities for us is about valuing history, culture and the environment and listening to, and becoming part of the stories that define them.”
Karri Hillier, CEO
We believe that working with communities rather than in communities is essential for achieving the best possible results. We have found that the willingness and spirit of local people and organisations to become part of the solution is often the largest influence for creating positive change.
Our spirit of working together, meeting the challenge and being determined to lead inspires everything we do. Creating a sense of belonging—for our staff, and the children, families and communities we work with is important to us.
This is what makes us “the place to be”.
