Community Child Health Nurses support all families with young children. The Child and Adolescent Community Health Service provides parents with support, health education and guidance about key health and developmental issues.


All families in Western Australia are offered five purple book appointments with their Child Health Nurse, from birth to two years. Child health nurses offer assessments, immunisation advice and support to all families with young children.

There are also different groups that parents can attend to support them through various stages of their child’s development. These include introducing solids to babies, strategies to help babies sleep, as well as programs to help support parents to have healthy relationships with children. Read about the different free parenting groups available through Child and Adolescent Community Health.
