Our commitment to reconciliation

Gowrie NSW is strongly committed to reconciliation and recognises the special place that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people hold within Australia and acknowledges that they are the first people of the land we share today.

We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as enduring, living cultures and pay our respects to Elders, past and present.



Gowrie Australia

gowrie-australia-logoGowrie Australia is a national consortium of state based Gowrie Organisations and is nationally committed to optimal outcomes for children and families.

Although each Gowrie is a separate entity, we work collaboratively through a Memorandum of Understanding to develop and implement quality education and care programs for young children which are informed by current research and thinking.


The consortium meets on a regular basis to share best practice and to undertake the editorial role for the quarterly Gowrie Australia publication “Reflections”. Reflections is distributed nationally to early education and care professionals, families and relevant government agencies. Additionally, the entities commit to "Theory into Practice", which is a Professional Learning methodology and partnership between the state members.
