“There are so many young families in the area and infrastructure has just not kept up. Labor’s plan for a child and parent centre at Ellenbrook Primary is a fantastic initiative that will benefit young families, providing help and support during those important early years,” Swan Hills Labor candidate Jessica Shaw said.

“It will also improve access to a range of services and be tailored to local parents needs, supporting early learning, parenting, child and maternal health and wellbeing programs.”

Ellenbrook resident Hayley Young said the school needed an early learning centre for parents in the area.
