The Child and Parent Centre – East Waikiki is operated in Rockingham by Ngala Community Services, in partnership with East Waikiki Primary School. The Child and Parent Centre – East Waikiki listens and responds to parents and the changing needs of families and communities, to meet the challenges of raising children, by offering a range of inclusive, evidence-based support services.
While our centre is located at East Waikiki Primary School, it is available for the whole of Rockingham. Schools directly involved are East Waikiki Primary School, Cooloongup Primary School, Waikiki Primary School, Charthouse Primary School and South Coast Baptist College.
At Ngala we believe every child deserves the opportunity to be their best, and that parenting should be a joyful and rewarding experience.
Our Ngala team Tina, Kate, Christine, Cherie and Yvonne invite you to come and join us at our family-friendly Centre.
We have listened and heard the requests from families and each term, after consultation, provide a variety of playgroups, workshops and services to address the changing needs of the community.
All our activities, events, workshops and programs are free for the Rockingham community.
