Dedicated to supporting you and your Mobile Service
The MCSA Difference
As the peak representative body for NSW Mobile Children’s Services for over two decades, we have actively and proudly promoted, resourced, represented and advocated on behalf of Mobile Services throughout New South Wales. Your MCSA membership gives your service a voice, in an ever-changing early childhood education and care and family support landscapes. Active membership makes this voice stronger through ongoing advocacy, professional growth and sector specific information. This is an extremely important time to show your support by joining your association to keep it active into the future.
A Strong Association – An increased member’s base provides a powerful united voice to the government on issues that affect you. Many changes in our sector are currently being followed, questioned and influenced by the management committee, using your input. MCSA has a strong working relationship with the State Government on current changes.
- Networking – Easy access via Facebook and a secure mobile community forum. These platforms allow all of your staff an area to network, share ideas and discuss concerns in our sector. The isolation some services experience can be vastly improved through these networking portals. Network sharing can support you in all aspects of operation.
Professional Growth - Through our partnership with CELA (Community Early Learning Australia) you will have access to mobile specific training opportunities. You will also have access to a network of professionals, who have a high level of experience in early childhood education and family services.
Resources - that are written for mobiles by professionals who understand mobiles. These resources encompass all areas of operation, from education to policies and procedures, management and governance.
Advocacy – our deep understanding of mobile specific issues, provides you with the very best representation possible with Government and key representative bodies. CELA will also be advising the management committee on advocacy opportunities and assisting to promote Mobile Children’s Services in the media.
Your passion is our passion – your membership ensures you are part of something bigger. We admire that mobiles are a professional group of educators who are deeply committed to the future of Mobile Children’s Services and we are passionate about supporting and representing you in the most effective way possible.
