Welcome to bestchance:

We have over 500 Staff Members and 100 Volunteers delivering a range of educational programs accredited under the Department of Education and Training. These programs include Early Childhood Learning and Development for children under the age of five and Primary Education for children with social/emotional and learning difficulties. These programs are complemented by a range of support services for parents and families such as Early Childhood Intervention and Parent and Community Support.

We also offer Nationally recognised Accredited Training through our Registered Training Organisation bestchance Training (TOID 3695).


Our programs work collaboratively to ensure families requiring additional support are identified, and assisted in accessing services both from within the organisation, and through partnerships with external providers.
