Children are as individuals and as different as their parents, and making decisions about what's best for raising children is very personal.

The Raising Children website offers up-to-date research-based material on more than 800 topics spanning child development, behaviour, health, nutrition and fitness, play and learning, connecting and communicating, school and education, entertainment and technology, sleep and safety.

It covers grown-ups, newborns (0-3 months), babies (3-12 months), toddlers (1-3 years), preschoolers (3-5 years), school-age children (5-9 years), pre-teens (9-11 years), and early teens (12-15 years).

There are tips, videos and other useful resources.

The Raising Children Network provides information that can help parents with the day-to-day decisions of raising children. It also provides information to help parents and carers look after their own needs. The information is based on the best science in parenting, child health and development, presented in language we can all understand.

This website is for mothers, fathers, grandparents and anyone else who has responsibility for the care of children.


A reminder that there is a P & F meeting on tonight at 7.00pm. It would be great to see as many parents attend as possible. Thank you. Lisa Foster.
