Our vision is for a vibrant and welcoming centre where children are supported to develop and grow.
Our mission is to provide children up to 8 years of age with disability or developmental delay with services that enhance their individual physical, emotional, cognitive, social and cultural development.

Queanbeyan Children’s Special Needs Group Inc. is an early intervention service for children aged 0 to 8 and their families. Based in Queanbeyan, we also provide outreach programs in surrounding regional areas, including Bungendore, Captains Flat and Murrumbateman.
For over 25 years, Queanbeyan Children’s Special Needs Group Inc. has been caring for the families and children of our area by providing a safe place with expert support to families in need. We are a proud, home grown, not for profit, community organisation staffed and managed by local people, all with a deep personal commitment to children with additional needs and their families.
Our flexible services combine family support, education and therapy programs in inclusive settings that reflect each child’s development stage. By building a partnership with families and the other professionals working with your child we aim to support the early years of each child’s physical, emotional, cognitive, social and cultural development.
Treehouse Early Intervention programs use a transdisciplinary key worker approach. Your key worker is the person you will work with most of the time. Key workers are early intervention professionals and may be an early childhood teacher, speech pathologist, occupational therapist or social worker.
All programs are individually planned to meet the specific needs and goals of each family and aim to see children enjoy the first stages of participation in community life. As a result of our work families:
- Improve health and early childhood development outcomes
- Improve inclusion in community settings
- Develop parental confidence
- Strengthen and expand parenting skills
- Connect to support networks in our local community
