Every Child Rising

Early childhood NDIS support for babies, young children and preschoolers in Canberra.

Serving Families in Belconnen, Gunghalin and North Canberra

Established by Alice Campbell, Every Child Rising supports Canberra families caring for a baby or young child with non-typical, complex or exceptional developmental, relationship, behaviour or social needs.

Alice originally trained as a Registered Nurse at Westmead, and is currently practicing as an Early Childhood Teacher. Her post-graduate education includes studies in children’s therapeutic play. She has over 25 years experience working alongside babies and little children, and their families. Her work has included training and supervision of nurses, teachers, social workers and other professionals. 

Services offered by Every Child Rising are grounded in person-centred principles. This reflects a belief that children best grow, learn and develop through deep engagement in play  and relationships with the people they care about.

Intensive support for children (birth – approx. 5/6 years) at home (including those in OOHC), day-care or preschool. Supporting meaningful, joyful, playful and connecting experiences that build each child’s capability for (social, emotional and cognitive) learning and authentic friendships.

Group Support for Babies, Little Children & Their Families

Welcoming and non-judgemental small group activities for parents and children with a focus on building relationships, recognising strengths and interests, and building confidence in play, learning and connecting. Open to NDIS and non-NDIS families.

Alice, I can't begin to thank you enough for the impact you have had on my relationship with Declan. You are truly an amazing person with such a gentle way of helping others to understand just what their little ones are trying to communicate. I will be forever grateful to you...

In these early months, when my wife is feeding our daughter and is primarily responsible for her care, there have been times when I have questioned my real value as a father. Alice, your group has given me something to share with my daughter...to connect with her one-to-one. Your insights into infant well-being have helped me understand what my daughter is trying to communicate and...this knowledge has really helped my wife and I get through some difficult times. I would recommend this group unreservedly to any parent...Thank you for sharing your knowledge and understanding.
