How the Centre helps
The Child and Parent Centre – Dudley Park is a State Government initiative run in partnership with Anglicare WA for families with children from birth to eight years of age, in Dudley Park and surrounding areas.
All programs are tailored to meet the needs of the community and include workshops like the Triple P and other parent help programs to help ensure parents and their children are ready for school. Onsite, the centre has a friendly child health nurse and speech pathologist.
The centre also has a child and family counselling service as well as a yarning circle.
Rhyme time is also a regular language and reading program where families sing songs, action rhymes and share great books. This is a great way for parents and carers to introduce babies to the fun and enjoyment of sharing nursery rhymes.
The Centre is located at Dudley Park Primary School, 3 Kooljack Street, Mandurah.
Child and Parent Centres are a State Government initiative that sees the Department of Education, Department of Health, Department of Local Government and Communities, Department of Child Protection, and Department of the Premier and Cabinet working together to support families with young children.
