About mobile children’s services

Mobile children’s services are early learning services ‘on wheels’. Outreach educators visit communities to deliver quality early learning and care services where centre-based delivery is not readily available. Mobile children’s services take on many forms including pre-school, child care, toy libraries, playsessions and playgroups. Services generally work with children 0-6 years old.


About MCSA

MCSA is the peak body which supports, enhances and advocates for mobile children’s services in NSW. We believe that all children, regardless of circumstances, should have access to quality early learning services. From our early days as a simple resourcing project in the 1980s, to where we are today, we’ve continued to support the innovative mobile children’s services sector.

MCSA and Contact Inc Partnership


Reuniting the past and shaping the future

Mobile Children's Services Association and Contact Inc are pleased to announce a formal partnership that will continue to deliver positive outcomes for mobile children's services, isolated children, families and communities in NSW. Prior to the Mobiles Association, Contact was the original contact point for the growing number of mobiles in the late 1970's and early 1980's and was where the Association first developed. This partnership will mean that Contact Inc will now provide the core support and resourcing functions for mobile services in NSW and by integrating operations aim to ensure an ongoing sustainability to enable a range of professional supports and resourcing to be available for NSW mobiles and MCSA.

MCSA will remain as the named peak body for mobile children's services in NSW and members based Association. From a mobile service perspective on a day to day basis, all MCSA activities such as the free call number, helpdesk email, website, resources, support, event coordination, submissions, and the other activities we do will remain. In addition Contact's CEO and MCSA's President will represent NSW mobiles at all the higher level consultations with government and other stakeholders. The specialised support being provided for the NSW Mobile Preschools in relation to opt-in contracts will continue through the MCSA contract with the NSW Department of Education under the Sector Development Program.
