Name change for Deniliquin Children’s Centre

After a period of community consultation Deniliquin Children’s Centre has changed its name to River Region Early Education.


The name change, Board Chair Emily Small said, better represents the reach of the educational service in the local area.


“It was evident that the name did not represent all of our services or the towns and communities we service,” she said.


Part of the reason behind the name change was to better reflect the reach of the service, which provides ECEC to children and families not only in Deniliquin but in Pretty Pine, Wanganella, Blighty, Bunnaloo and Barham.


The change follows the integration of Barham Early Learning Service to the organisation in April 2023, however a number of elements will remain the same, including the duckling in the logo, and the services provided to children and families. 


“It captures children’s sense of awe and wonder and reflects that freedom to play and learn is at the core of our curriculum,” Mrs Small shared with local news source Deniliquin Pastoral Times. 


“The ripple pattern behind the duckling reflects the impact of intentional early childhood education which stays with children as they grow, spreading throughout their life like ripples across the water.”


“The name River Region Early Education will take us into the future – hopefully for the next 20 years and beyond.”
