Northern Rivers Community Gateway is an accredited registered charity, operating for over forty years to support the most disadvantaged people in our communities.

One of the services we provide is an outside school hours child care service called Rainbow Region Kids.

Rainbow Region Kids services are affordable and high quality, including before school care, after school care and school holidays Vacation Club. They are delivered across six locations throughout the Northern Rivers region, including Alstonville, Casino, Kyogle, Lismore, Ocean Shores and Wollongbar.

Rainbow Region Kids is externally accredited and is Child Care Subsidy approved, which means parents can receive government payments to cover the costs. Our children’s activities are fun, safe and educational. They are based on the My Time Our Place framework for school-aged children, which supports effective learning through play and leisure.

All our Rainbow Region Kids services are staffed by professional children’s workers and educators. Each service also has access to a children’s specialist worker, who can provide additional support to children, parents and educators, who can assist children with additional needs or challenging behaviours and who can facilitate access to our integrated, wrap-around support services.
