Next Step, our evidence based program, helps children with additional needs explore, develop, learn, build relationships and have loads of fun. We offer a nurturing environment supported by specialised coaches, health professionals and a pathway for families to experience feelings of security, acceptance and understanding.


Next Step’s inclusive learning approach aims to narrow the divide between children’s access to mainstream and special needs classes. Our approach has proven results and strong family and community support.
