St Joseph’s Family Services

St Joseph’s Family Services (SJFS) is a dynamic multifaceted not for profit offering a diverse range of early education and care programs within the Port Macquarie Hastings area of the Mid North Coast.

We operate as a child-friendly family focused organisation, proud of our long history in the community. Operating since 1973, our programs have grown to include four early education and care services, the NSW Mid North Coast Inclusion Support Agency and Family Support Network.

Our inclusive family focused ‘Open Door’ Policy encouraged parents to engage in the shared education of their children. We are committed to forming and maintaining a strong partnership with parents and being able to meet, as best as possible, the needs of each family.

Our early education and care programs – St Joseph’s Preschool and Long Day Care, Joey’s House Early Education Centre, St Agnes’ Early Education Centre and Hastings Family Day Care, are all run within purpose built centres with a focus on providing innovative, explorative, educational and fun learning environments. Both indoor and outdoor environments provide children with an engaging and holistic approach to early learning education.

SJFS is located on the Mid North Coast of NSW and includes four specific Aboriginal communities – Birpai, Dunghatti, Gambaynggirr and Bungalung. All centres
SJFS operates as an entity of St Agnes’ Parish, Port Macquarie. We ensure all funds received by SJFS are reinvested into current and future services for the benefit of children.

Each service offers tours of their facilities for parents and children. Call us to arrange a tour today.
