The Child and Parent Centre – Banksia Grove is run by Ngala in partnership with Banksia Grove Primary School.
We work to listen and respond to parents and the changing needs of families and communities, to promote healthy child development, by offering a range of inclusive, evidence-informed and evidence-based support services.
At Ngala, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be their best, and that parenting should be a joyful and rewarding experience. This is what we call, raising happiness.
While our centre is located at Banksia Grove Primary School, it is available to families in the communities of Banksia Grove, Clarkson and Merriwa. The centre offers programs and services to families with children from birth to four years, however families with children up to eight years old can access the centre.
Our team Cindy, Grainne & Kat ensure programs and services are available to support families in our community and are easy to access.
