The primary goal of the fkaCS MRC is to provide resources to support members in the provision of culturally respectful service delivery and curriculum design, in line with the Education and Care National Quality Framework.

The MRC serves a membership with a broad range of knowledge and qualifications spanning education and care services across the early and middle years. The collection includes professional and children's resources thereby providing multiple entry points for the educator or service to access and engage with the collection.

Resources include:

  • Children’s fiction and non-fiction
  • Story Bags
  • Dramatic play resources
  • Music and story CDs and DVDs
  • Percussion musical instruments
  • Professional Resources, and more!
