About Today's Child
Today's Child was founded by a group of dedicated social workers, child care educators and qualified trainers with over 25 years experience in the childcare and child protection sectors.

With a growing number of Parents and educators expressing concerns about children experiencing high anxiety, lacking resilience or being exposed to family violence it is an important time to gain a better understanding of how this impacts children and how adults can assist them.

Our courses are strength based and solution-focused with practical strategies on protecting and supporting children's well being, as well as your own.

We are passionate about empowering parents and carers to care for children with a focus on their physical and mental health, wellbeing and development.
