Child and Family Centres
Guide to Childrens Services
The early years of a child's life set the foundation for their future health, development and learning. The centres are a one-stop-shop supporting families during this important time.
The centres are staffed by professionals, including social workers, psychologists and maternal and child health nurses and are designed to provide a range of support programs to assist parents and young children (pre-birth to 8 years).
