The four councils in conjunction with Child and Adolescent Community Health runs a free Immunisation Clinic on the 1st Wednesday of every month from 9.30am to 12.30pm, in The Grove Community Centre. All Childhood immunisations are available as per the WA Immunisation Schedule, are free and no appointment is necessary. For enquiries please call 9321 1312.

Child Health Nurses also hold a ‘Drop in’ clinic for new parents in the Community Centre every Wednesday morning from 9am to 11am. Open to all parents (and children under 4) who would like to come and speak to a nurse and have any questions answered or have their babies weighed.  Wednesday afternoons in the community centre are for New Parent Groups which are run in four week cycles and cover topics such as sleep settling, breast feeding and adapting to the changes and challenges of parenting. 

Targeted and specialist programs are also offered and run in the Community Centre on a periodic basis. These education programs are for parents who would like to learn more about getting their baby to sleep, how and when to introduce solid foods and toddler information sessions (12 to 18months) on such things as toilet training, sleep, nutrition and understanding toddler behaviour.

For more information about these programs please phone Child Health on 9286 8669 or 9347 6900
