Child Parenting Centres

In October 2012 WA Education Minister Peter Collier announced the eight successful organisations that will co-ordinate the inaugural Child Parenting Centres at 10 independent public schools.

Parkerville Children and Youth Care was successful in our bids for two schools – Challis, where we have had an association for five years and Brookman, where we have more recently introduced our services. Both schools are in the South East (Armadale region) metro area where our service capacity continues to grow substantially.

This is an exciting addition to our primary services of early intervention and prevention. Our School Based Support Services provide services in 13 schools, nine in the South East metro and four in the Mirrabooka area. The new Child Parenting Centres will co-ordinate a range of services for the families within the schools region to support children and their parents.
