Rockdale Children and Families Hub
The Rockdale Children and Families Hub is a ‘one stop shop’ where parents, carers and children can go to have fun, be supported and have access to information and services to enhance the health and wellbeing of families.
By bringing different services together in the one location the Rockdale Children and Families Hub aims to make sure that all children living in Rockdale get the best start to school and are supported by a connected community. Children learn a lot in the early years of life before they start school. Therefore, it is important that parents and children learn together to provide early childhood experiences and support for children in the community.
