YOU WANT TO HELP BREAK THE CYCLE
AND GIVE KIDS IN CARE A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Currently, over 11,000 children live in out of home care in Queensland. Children enter care due to a myriad of reasons including physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect.
Once children are in foster care, their journey has only just begun. They require therapy and intensive support to deal with the trauma of abuse and the subsequent secondary traumas related to being a child in care.
Early intervention in the primary school years is critical. By creating engagement with learning and building confidence and self-esteem through holistic educational trauma-informed support, we can change the trajectory and life outcomes for these children.
Welcome to Little Stars Kids
Little Stars Kids is a not-for-profit organisation based in South East Queensland. Through our Little Stars Learners program, we provide trauma-informed educational support programs to children who have experienced trauma and are living in foster, kinship and residential care.
Our mission is to help young people who have experienced abuse and neglect to engage in learning in a positive way and build confidence and self- esteem to enable them to thrive not only at school, but in life.
Creating positive engagement with early learning can be the impetus a child needs to break the cycle of trauma and lead a happy and successful life.
