Community engagement

We invite families to share their interests and skills with us throughout the centre.

In the preschool program we would welcome families to demonstrate a particular skill or talent with all the children, help out in a general way by assisting staff with daily activities, join us on regular excursions, participate in regular discussions with staff about your child, complete and return Parent Opinion Surveys and become a member on Governing Council.

Community development

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.

Our Community Development Coordinator also partners with other agencies to plan and organise a range of programs including:
