Child and Parent Centres
To make sure your children get the best possible start to life, we’ve opened 22 Child and Parent Centres across Western Australia. These innovative, family-friendly centres are for parents with children up to eight years old in convenient locations at or near local primary schools.
Centre coordinators work with families, local schools and the community to ensure the programs, services and supports needed most in the area are easy to access and use.
Centres provide a range of easily accessible programs and services for you and your family, including early learning programs, maternal and child health services, and child support activities. Families can visit the child health nurse at the centre and there may be speech pathologists, physiotherapists and other health professionals there for them to see.
There is information and advice to help with your children’s development such as playing together, reading to your children and preparing nutritious and healthy meals. Your family can also be part of playgroups and parent groups where you can meet other parents.
