Plumtree is a not-for-profit organisation that provides support for young children aged birth to 8 years old with a developmental delay or disability and their families. Our vision is a society where children with disabilities and developmental delays, and their families, are supported to have a full life in the community.
Plumtree has been a trusted community-based organisation for over 30 years. We draw on the diverse expertise of our staff to provide tailored support for children and families, including education, therapy, information and training in a variety of settings — in the home, at the child’s preschool, child care centre or school, at our Marrickville centre and in other community settings.
We have an outstanding team who work from the heart, bringing a diversity of expertise and deep knowledge to a nurturing environment where families no longer feel isolated, but instead feel more cared for and informed. We also proudly pioneer innovative products to help our broader constituents learn and grow.
Values & Culture
We believe that every child with a disability or developmental delay has a right to participate in family and community life. Our culture is truly supportive, based on integrity, respect, flexibility and genuine caring for each other, our communities and the work we do in partnership with families.
The team at Plumtree are passionate about working with children and their families. They are highly qualified specialists with expertise in early childhood development and come from a range of disciplines, including special education, therapy and social work. They work with children with a range of delays and disabilities, and are experienced using a variety of methodologies and strategies. We also have a linguistically and culturally diverse team, with many community languages spoken amongst us.
Plumtree is supported by a dedicated board with diverse experience, united by their commitment to children and families.
