As child care providers for Perth and suburbs such as Wattle Grove or Baldivis, we feel a great responsibility to parents. We don’t feel our responsibility ends when the school day ends. It is our mission to inform and help parents provide a great growing and learning environment for their children.
You may not know it, but the Australian Government has some great resources for parents who want to be active participants in their child’s growth. We would like to give you a quick list of them here with short descriptions.
This is the clearinghouse on the best information about child care types and how you can get financial assistance and great information about parenting, wellbeing and health. It should be your first choice when looking for information.
