CREC awarded Child and Parent Centre Initiative tender
Tuesday, 28 August 2012
CREC has been awarded the tender to support the development of the Child and Parent Centre Initiative in Western Australia.
The Department of Education in collaboration with the Department of Health, the Department of Communities and non-government service providers is working towards the coordination and integration of services for young children and their families. Ten child and parent centres will be established on school sites in communities where there is a high proportion of vulnerable families. CREC is working in a consultative role to provide evidence based information about effective ways of developing and delivering coordinated / integrated early childhood programs and services. In addition we will establish data recording and reporting tools and frameworks in consultation with the service providers. Further up-dates will be posted as the initiative develops.
