Welcome to RICE

Welcome to RICE

RICE will be 40 years old in December 2016 and will be celebrating this achievement with children’s activities on Saturday 10 December 2016 followed by a Dinner for parents, staff and others both present and past on the Saturday evening at the Central Oval Complex. Further information is on the RICE 40th Birthday Facebook page.

Living in the outback has its challenges and for families with young children, those challenges can be even greater.

To support children and their families living in the remote and isolated areas of outback South Australia the Remote & Isolated Children’s Exercise Inc. ( RICE ) was established in 1976 and has been providing health, wellbeing, childcare, play days, early childhood education and toy and resource library services to the children and their families for over 30 years.

With its base in Port Augusta, staff travel thousands of kilometres a year across  655000 square kilometres of outback South Australia  providing these services.

New families are always welcome.
