Reconciliation within Kentish
Kentish has been operational since 1990 and Incorporated since 1994 and our founder the late Lavinia Mills was on the Early Childhood Australia NT Reconciliation Advisory Group. At Kentish we strive for excellence for each child and young person sharing with joy their nurturing and care which is defined by our mission of “Valuing Families, Communities and Each Other”.

Over time we built a strong relationship with the Bagot community via our Thursday morning play group events, which included educators, the children in their care, staff and the Bagot Community. These were called “The Gathering” and included damper making, story-telling and play sessions. We also assisted the Bagot Community with building improvements during this period.
