Since 1907, the organisation has grown and developed its social purpose agenda and now educates children in 360 centres which is comprised of both Childcare Centres and Kindergartens.

The service has a strong focus on the natural environment and sustainable practices, and the children assist in the maintenance of the herb, vegetable and flower gardens. Each day, food scraps are collected and fed to the centre chooks. Recycling is also a feature of the service, with families collecting items found in nature as well as cardboard rolls, material scraps and egg cartons for use in a creative area. Baskets displayed in the centre are filled with items from nature such as pine cones, stones, shells and logs.
