Child and Parent Centres                     

The State Government is committed to the Child and Parent Centre initiative on or near to selected public school sites in vulnerable communities. These community centres are intended to improve access to a range of early learning, parenting, child and maternal health and wellbeing programs and services that provide support to families with young children, birth to eight years – with a focus on children from birth to four years of age.

The Department of Education is the lead agency for the initiative working in partnership with other government departments and Non-government organisations selected to manage and provide services at each Child and Parent Centre site.

Discover more about the initiative, including the location of the Child and Parent Centres and the nongovernment organisations selected to operate each centre here.

Information on the rationale and research behind the Child and Parent Centres service model can be found in a Literature Review conducted by Edith Cowan University entitled Child and Parent Centres on Public School Sites in Low Socioeconomic Communities in Western Australia: A Model of Integrated Service Delivery.
