Children & Family Centres

Meerilinga Children and Family Centres are child centred hubs for families to connect with each other and the community. Each Children and Family Centre has a variety of services for families, including Early Learning Programs, Playgroups, Parenting Support, Child Health Services, Speech Therapy, Toy Libraries and community groups.

Equipped for every season, our centres have beautiful naturescape outdoor environments co-designed by children and families and spacious indoor areas with toys and play equipment to support children’s learning. Each centre is available to rent by the community, they are perfect for children’s parties, mother’s groups, community groups, support groups, study sessions, meetings and demonstrations.

We have 6 Children and Family Centre locations: Ballajura, Beechboro, Cockburn, High Wycombe, Kingsley, Woodvale.

Meerilinga Playgroups are the way to get in touch with other families and make lasting friendships while you negotiate the important early years of your child/children’s lives.  Our playgroups – developed through a partnership approach with parents and carers –  are peer support programs, growing your knowledge, confidence, skills and expectations and empowering you with long lasting positive life experiences for both you and your child.

If you want your child to connect with kids in their neighbourhood and the rich tapestry of cultures that make up your local community we would love you to come an join one of our unique playgroups at Meerlinga.
