Welcome to Lady Gowrie Tasmania

Lady Gowrie Tasmania has a simple position statement  – ‘Children First’ – and is committed to providing the highest quality education and care for children to give them the best start in life. We work in partnerships with families, early to middle childhood professionals and the broader community to ensure children are happy, healthy and develop a love of learning. 

Whilst education and care is the cornerstone of the business, over the years the organisation has evolved into a multi-faceted organisation with a range of programs and services that support children, families and those who work with them. 

2019 saw the milestone achievement of providing 80 years of quality services to the Tasmanian community. Countless children, families and individuals have been a part of the Lady Gowrie Tasmania story, with many families using services across generations. It is both an honour and a privilege to be part of so many Tasmanian family histories. 

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the responsive and innovative services and programs available at Lady Gowrie Tasmania and encourage you to make contact with or visit these services and programs.
