Our Family and Community programs

Helping parents is one of the key ways to help children thrive and reach their potential.  That’s why our College is a vibrant community centre, as well as a school and early learning centre.

By bringing health and family support services together on site at Doveton College, we make it easy for children and parents to get the support they need, when they need it.

Parents can make an appointment to see our school nurse or visiting doctor, enrol their child in a playgroup, join an adult education class or get help for everything from parenting problems to advice on employment and training.
