The early years are a vital time in children’s development. Research shows that how children develop and learn during this time can influence their success at school and in later life. So all the experiences they have during this time are extremely important. To make sure children get the best possible start to life, Child and Parent Centres are being set up at public schools to support parents of young children. The centres are helping families lay the building blocks for their children’s success.
Visit the centre anytime Monday to Friday, between 8am and 4.30pm on the Rangeway Primary School site, 4 Cassia Street. The entrance to the centre is off Hovea Street, Rangeway.
The Child and Parent Centre – Rangeway is run by Geraldton Regional Community Education Centre (GRCEC) in partnership with Rangeway Primary School. While our centre is located at Rangeway Primary School, services are available for the whole community.
The centres are mainly for families with children from birth to four years. Families with children up to eight years old can also use the centres.
Our Centre Co-ordinator is working with parents, local schools and the surrounding community to make sure programs, services and supports needed by families in the area are easy to access and use. The Co-ordinator may ask a local community organisation to run a parenting workshop for example, or arrange for the child health nurse to be at the centre on set days each week.
Other services and support may include:
The State Government, Western Australia.
