A Brief History

CHARLTON BROWN® was established in 1985 by Clare Charlton and Meryn Brown under the banner of Charlton Brown Australia Nanny College.

In the 30 years since our establishment, CHARLTON BROWN® has built a global reputation as a leader in community care through training, recruitment, global linkages and industry advocacy. We have trained more than 15,000 students worldwide and placed many in employment, both nationally and internationally.

CHARLTON BROWN® has also paved the way for students from around the world to study with us at our Brisbane-based college, and externally throughout Australia.

A strong care philosophy underpins our approach to training and business. It also drives our network-building activities with international partners. This has resulted in formal agreements and the delivery of qualifications and skill-sets to Australian Standards across Indonesia, China, Japan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India and the Philippines. These partnerships and networks also provide our students with practical overseas learning opportunities that benefit the local communities they visit.
