The Western Australian Government has committed $48.7 million to establish 16 purpose-built Child and Parent Centres on selected public school sites throughout the State and East Maddington Primary School was selected to host one of these new centres. The school welcomes the opportunity of working closely with the Child and Parent Centre in supporting families and their children from our immediate community as well as through our nearby schools and their communities. The Child and Parent Centre coordinator, appointed by Centre Care, began working on site in 2014 and the building was completed in 2015 and is now fully operational.
Families with young children (birth to 8 years) will have easier access to coordinated early learning, maternal, health, developmental and parenting support services and programs for their young children during these busy and important formative years.
