The Early Connections Alliance is a collaborative network of four not for profit community based organisations on the Mid North Coast.

All four organisations have a dedicated team of professionals committed to delivering excellence in Early Childhood Intervention.

Our vision and mission

We believe all children and families can learn, play and connect with the community.

We offer life changing early childhood intervention through education, therapy and support.  


Our story

Since 1981 we’ve made connections with hundreds of children and families on the Mid North Coast through the Early Childhood Interventions Programs.

In 2016, with the exciting introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme we formed an Alliance to meet the growing needs of our community

Today, our teams work together to create a strong and connected Early Childhood Intervention Network on the Mid North Coast. 

Early Connections Early Childhood Intervention operates in the following locations: Coffs Harbour, Kempsey, Port Macquarie Hastings, Wauchope, Lake Cathie, Taree, Tuncurry and surrounds.

Manning & Great Lakes  covers Greater Taree, Great Lakes, Gloucester, Bulahdelah and Tea Gardens.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) gives you and your family more flexibility to choose services based on your child’s individual needs, goals and aspirations.
