Multi-cultural child care opportunities

Parents and carers of all cultures are invited to a free information session about child care on Thursday 19 March, supporting Harmony Week.

Questions different cultures may have about child care include:

  • Why is childcare called ‘education and care’?
  • Does child care consider my culture?
  • What are the different types of child care?
  • Can I set up my own child care?

Come to the Child and Parent Centre – Rangeway’s temporary location at the OSCCA Building, Ramshaw Place Geraldton from 9.30 to 11am. A crèche service is available for parents attending the information session. To book your place call 0488020078 or email

This activity supports the Regional Children’s Services Plan, a State wide initiative occurring across nine regional areas of Western Australia, to develop a more strategic, long-term approach to children’s services for 0 to 12 year olds in the region.

The project is funded by The Department for Local Government and Communities through the Royalties for Regions Regional Community Child Care Development Fund, which was established to support the development of sustainable models of regional community managed education and care services that meet the needs of families living in regional Western Australia. 

Child Australia is coordinating the Regional Children’s Services Plan project in two of the nine WA regional areas, Peel and the Midwest.

Organisations collaborating with Child Australia to deliver this event are the Midwest Multicultural Mothers Group, Geraldton Regional Community Education Centre through the Child and Parent Centre, Bright Stars Family Day Care and other members of the Midwest Education and Care Services Network.
