Our Story

Our Story

Care is more than just being there: it’s nurturing safe spaces to explore, grow and belong. For over 24 years Hessel Group have been industry-leaders in early childhood education, training and care. We understand the unique and changing needs of children and you can be confident in our expertise because our experience sets us apart.

Proudly South Australian born, owned and operating on Kaurna Land, Hessel Group is part of the community with over 200 employees assisting families with their care and education needs. 

Hessel Group was established in 1998 to support families with childcare solutions in and out of the home and has grown to be not only an employer and provider but also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) under Enhance Training RTO #40387, specialising in training for the disability, aged care and early childhood sectors. 

Hessel Group Training Organisation (GTO) manages traineeships for the social care sector. Hessel Children’s Centre currently has 6 trainees working in our centre. Trainees typically work with us 4 days a week and undertake their training 1 day a week. This enables people to earn while they lean while applying their new skills directly in the workplace.

This history and foundation in childhood education ensures all of our Hessel Children’s Centre staff deliver educational and care services of the highest quality, aligned with industry best-practice.

To further support our communities, Hessel Group is also NDIS approved, providing personal support and Allied Health services to meet the unique needs of every child.
