Children, youth & family support

Waverley Council values and supports our growing families. We aim to provide a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for everyone across different stages of family life. A variety of education and care options make it easy for our community to feel active, informed and supported.

Our beaches and parks, arts, culture and sporting facilities, schools and transport hub make Waverley an important regional centre, attracting families and young people from across Sydney.

Talk to us if you need help with:

  • Children & Family Services: 4 Early Education Centre’s and a Family Day Care service provide high-quality education and care programs.
  • Family & Community Support services: Our in-house specialist offers families information, parenting classes and 1:1 counselling. We also help families access inclusion support that caters for children with additional needs.
  • Young people: We assist with a range of programs and services so that young people feel heard and are engaged in activities that matter to them.  In 2019, a new innovative program helps young people explore career opportunities in creative and cultural industries. Click here for more info.

Waverley Council also supports several services in the community to help meet the needs of children, families and young people. We offer affordable accommodation, venue hire grants and meeting rooms for community groups and invite applications for funding each year to support community projects and initiatives.
