Parenting Courses & Services

Dear families, we have some important information for our community.

The South West Metropolitan Parenting Service (SWMPS) is a vital source of information and support for parents. Our face to face services have been suspended due to COVID-19 government recommendations.

However, during this time of change and uncertainty the SWMPS partners – Cockburn Parenting Service, Kwinana Early Years Service (KEYS) Parenting Service and Meerilinga Parenting Service – are committed to providing resources and support to families by offering support calls via telephone or zoom, online platforms and sharing useful content, tips and ideas on social media.

Please contact us to find out more about online workshops and support calls.

Stay safe 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

For many years, Meerilinga has delivered parenting support, courses and services to thousands of families across Perth and we will continue to do so. From this month, the way parenting services in WA are delivered has changed and Meerilinga is proud to be partnering with our colleagues at Kwinana Early Years Services (KEYS) and the City of Cockburn, to provide the new South West Metropolitan Parenting Service (SWMPS).

New parents! Check out this wonderful resource, A Letter From Your Baby, written by the Australian Association for Infant Mental Health. This piece is written from the perspective of your newborn baby to you, and is a fantastic reminder of the vital work you do as a parent every day.
