Supporting Our Community

“Parenting young children is a complex and often stressful task for many families. Education and care services can support families in their parents role by providing easily accessible and reliable information and help them to make connections with other services in the local community.”

Guide to the National Quality Framework Element 6.2.2

Research shows that children learn best with the support of knowledgeable professionals and families.  Seaforth Childcare is an integral part of the community and supports families in locating or accessing community resources and support agencies that may be relevant to their needs.
