Parenting Courses & Services

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).

A guide for parents

Parents and carers with children aged birth to 18 years living in Cockburn, Rockingham, Kwinana, Fremantle, Melville and East Fremantle localities are eligible to access parenting support services to assist them in:

  • managing the challenges of parenting;
  • building knowledge, skills and confidence;
  • understanding children’s development; and
  • identifying local community supports and other relevant networks.

‘Parent’ is considered to include carers, foster carers, relative carers, stepfamilies, grandfamilies and others who have a direct full-time, part-time or occasional parenting role.
