Membership

Since our establishment in 1908, FKA children’s services (fkaCS) has advocated for high quality education for all Victorian children and families. Now, in our 110th year, fkaCS continues to advocate for children’s cultural and linguistic rights and provide support to education and care services in the provision of culturally rich environments that reflect a civil society.

Members directly support our vision for all children to actively participate in quality education and care services that recognise, value and celebrate diversity.

Membership funds enable us to advocate for children’s cultural and linguistic rights, develop resources and maintain the Multicultural Resource Centre
