The week our Pre-Kindy programs mixed, baked and decorated cupcakes in class for Cupcakes 4 a Cure. Children brought in a gold coin donation and all money raised through the Cupcakes 4 a Cure will help The Kids’ Cancer Project fund scientific research, to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for this indiscriminate disease.

It’s not always easy to choose which toys you think your children are going to love. And who has money to waste on toys that never get played with?
Luckily, Whitford Rainbow Toy Library, which runs from Whitford Family Centre every Saturday morning from 9-11am, has a huge range of toys, games, ride-ons, puzzles and dress-ups.

Become a member and you can borrow whatever you want to find out what your children really like.



We enjoyed a fantastic Mother’s Day at Whitford Family Centre this year. The mums were invited to enjoy a lovely morning and/or afternoon tea, with muffins created by the children. In addition to sharing a story and delighting in the delicious food, all mums received a gift lovingly made by the children.

On behalf of everyone at Whitford Family Centre, we hope all the mothers enjoyed their very special day.
