FAMILY RESOURCE CENTRES

The Family Resource Centres are designed to encourage children to learn through play, focusing on early literacy experiences, strengthening parenting skills, and promoting family and community engagement. We provide a child-friendly learning environment that stimulates brain development. Children then learn to socialize, and acquire skills that help prepare them for life. Parents are encouraged to observe and participate in activities that assist early learning, and discover new ways to support their children’s learning at home.

Philosophy

Children are the most important asset in our community, and building rapport with families is core to providing Early Year’s services. To provide effective support services, it is essential to have a trusting, non-judgmental, open, and empowering relationship with each participant.
