New Childcare Agency
New Childcare Agency for the Townsville Diocese
Most Rev. Timothy Harris, Bishop of Townsville has announced a new Diocesan Agency to stand alongside its other agencies such as Townsville Catholic Education and Centacare.
The new agency is likely to be called Mary MacKillop Childcare N.Q and will be responsible for the governance and administration of Outside School Hours Care, Kindergartens and Long Day Care Centres.
For the children and their families using these services, the high quality childcare services will continue and it will be business as usual at all the various centres.
Bishop Tim noted the capacity to provide an effective childcare service will now transfer seamlessly to one overall diocesan childcare entity.
Bishop Tim also announced the appointment of Mrs Alana Crouch as the interim agency head, and said the change would come in to effect from early 2020.
