Welcome to Parafield Gardens Children’s Centre for Early Childhood Development and Parenting.
In 2014 the Centre was recognised by Save the Children Australia as a Global Peace School-Early Years for promotion of child rights in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Centre works in partnership with families, community and agencies to support the education and early childhood development of young children. This community is one of great diversity where everyone is encouraged to participate.
We champion the child as a citizen from birth with capabilities, competencies and the possessor of Rights. We respect and value the traditions and culture of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We embrace an intercultural community and the richness it brings. Optimal learning opportunities occur through our strong respectful partnerships with families, community and services. Children learn through a strong PLAYFUL holistic curriculum.
Parafield Gardens Children’s Centre for Early Childhood Development and Parenting will support the learning, development and wellbeing of families and young children, pre-birth to 8 years of age by bringing together care, education, health, community development and family services, combined with family and community partnerships.
