The CSNSW Mothers and Children's Program is one of a significant number of prison nursery programs operating in Australia and overseas to reduce the impact of incarceration on the children of inmates. Since 1996 the prison nursery has been located at Jacaranda Cottages, a purpose built facility on the Emu Plains Correctional Centre complex. The Program allows children from birth to twelve years of age to live with their Mother on a full time or occasional residence basis. School age children can participate on weekends and school holidays. The unit is compliant with international standards and conventions governing prison nursery units.
Enquiries regarding the Mothers and Children's Program should be directed to the Manager (02) 4735 0230.
