Support Us

Every child deserves an equal chance at a full life.

Research proves that children who face additional challenges do better when they are included in normal childcare and schooling.

This level of inclusion takes resources: training, research and support. That takes money.

While government funding helps, it only covers a third of our expenses. For the rest, we rely on you.

What you can do

Just $75 covers a child’s annual fee.

A monthly, regular donation of $75 will help twelve families over a year.

A generous $5,000 will cover a STaR child’s fees for a year.

Or you can sponsor a STaR-affiliated childcare centre – helping them to meet the extra costs and resources they need to include remarkable, and challenging, kids in regular classes.

Whatever you can afford, you will make a difference. Our administration costs are less than 10%, so every dollar you donate has a big impact on the services we offer to families.
