New Strategic Plan for QEC

Over the past 12 months, the QEC Board worked hard to develop a new Strategic Plan to guide and support our work over the next 3-year horizon.

We have strengthened our commitment to inspiring confident, capable communities that enable children to experience the best start in life. Four key directions shape our work:

I.          Children, Families & Communities: infants, children, families and their communities are at the centre of everything we do;

II.          Leadership & Collaboration: our leadership and partnerships ensure all children are afforded the best start in life;

III.          Sustainability: we are able to provide enduring support to families now and into the future;

IV.          People & Culture: our people are essential to providing, innovative, high quality care that enables children to thrive. Our new Strategic Plan can be found here

101st Annual General Meeting

QEC was extremely proud to host our 101st Annual General Meeting on November 13th 2019.

We were entertained by young students from the Noble Park English Language School. We launched our Annual Report and we unveiled our new Strategic Plan!  

We were also very pleased to have Sheena Watt release our first Reconciliation Action Plan. We acknowledged many contributions to our great organisation – including Ian Ross as our new Life Governor and a number of staff who have contributed many years of service. Click here to view Annual Report.
