Children’s Centres have a Community Development Coordinator who is available to support and encourage parents and families to actively participate in all aspects of the centre.
Community Development Coordinators also partner with other agencies to plan and organise a range of programs including:
- Playgroups for parents and carers including Aboriginal families, dads, step-parents, grandparents, foster carers, family day care educators, refugees and newly arrived families and children.
- Parenting programs: child development, early literacy, song time, music and movement, baby massage, support groups and cooking.
- Community events: family fun days, community lunches, school holiday programmes cultural events, celebrations and BBQs.
- Personal development: literacy, career pathways, skill development, volunteering and adult education.
- Parents and Community: centre volunteer program, engaging parents in the community.
You can get involved in our centre in many ways. If you are interested in helping to make decisions about how the Centre operates you might choose to join Governing Council, Early Learning Centre Advisory Group or the whole of school sub committees.
Volunteer programs are also available if you are interested in a hands-on role in the centre's daily operations. Volunteering will help you gain valuable skills that could provide potential training and employment opportunities. Parents are always welcome to help with parent groups, cooking or craft activities or at centre events like working bees.
