Family Resource Centres

Family resource centres provide a variety of community-based activities and resources for children and families that focus on early childhood development and parenting support. They provide a place for families to gather in a friendly and informal setting.

A variety of programs are offered that reflect the needs of the families who are participating and the communities in which they are located. Types of programs and services might include everything from drop-in playgroups, infant massage, parenting programs and breastfeeding support to a community trading cupboard.

Many services offered are free and may offer free childcare for parents attending programs. Please call or visit the centre nearest you for more information.
