Lipscombe is a not for profit organisation run by professional members of the community. We feel our ties to our local and wider community deeply and encourage children in our older programs to engage in the community through regular outings.

Volunteers are welcome to support our programs appropriately. Any regular visitor must hold a Working With Children Check and work closely with educators to compliment the programs.

We assist in student training and from time-to-time have students placed in our programs from local training centres. These placements are limited, but provide wonderful, practical experience for the students. Families are advised by notices and newsletters when students are present.
