Membership

Our vision is for all children to actively participate in quality education and care services that recognise, value and celebrate diversity.

Since our establishment in 1908, fka Children’s Services (fkaCS) has advocated for high quality education for all Victorian children and families. Now fkaCS continues to advocate for children’s cultural and linguistic rights and support education and care services in the provision of culturally rich environments that reflect a civil society.

Members enjoy a range of benefits and play a vital role in supporting fkaCS to achieve our vision and purpose. Membership funds enable fkaCS to:

+ Advocate for children’s cultural and linguistic rights

+ Maintain the Multicultural Resource (MRC) collection – ensuring hard-to-find multicultural/bilingual resources are accessible to Victorian education and care services

+ Design and implement new programs and resources to support all children’s active participation, learning and belonging in their service.
