Lutheran Care’s Family Zone is a child and parenting centre based at Ingle Farm Primary School. The centre brings together a range of support programs for families.
Programs are designed to facilitate the physical, emotional, social and cognitive development of children aged zero to 12 in a familiar environment. Parents also feel at home, as they meet with others who are going through similar experiences.
We offer a broad range of programs at Family Zone to benefit children and young people and their families, and people in the broader community.
