We are a not-for-profit organisation that provides a transdisciplinary team of psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists and family services
Children’s Therapy Centre has a thirty year heritage that is proudly focused on the Sunshine Coast and Gympie regions. We now have centres at Nambour, Gympie and Kawana Waters.
The Children’s Therapy Centre was established in 1988 by families who previously had to travel to Brisbane to access therapy services for their children. Initially the centre operated three days a week from a room at Nambour State School. During our early years, the organisation had a variety of temporary locations. In 2008 we started providing services in Gympie and in 2017 we opened a new centre in Kawana Waters.
During the 1990’s, with increased funding and community support, the service was extended to provide therapy for five days a week. In 1997, following major community effort and with government support, a purpose-built centre was opened for the children and families of the Sunshine Coast for their essential therapy services. The centre was renovated in 2010 to provide more space and in 2012, donated funds helped to build a new outdoor area for children’s therapy sessions. We have now helped thousands of children with our family-centred approach.
