I consult there once a fortnight, in what is an unused Maternal & Child Health Nurse room. It is a two nurse centre but had had a vacant room for 15 mths.
|The entrance. Great bed of Huge red Kangaroo Paw.|
I started in July as I wanted to build up my private practice for when I retire from RCH in July 2013, and also provide a service in the Western suburbs
It has been at least 50% booked ever since.
In exchange for the room I do some Parent education groups X 3 in 6months. I think I get the poor end of the deal as I did one for them a year ago and got paid well!!
It was for a trial for 6 months, but when I discussed with the Co-ordinator earlier in December she is happy for me to continue, but they will be using the centre again, so I am changing my time so I finish at 1pm. That will be good as I will still have the afternoon off.
|Grass no longer green, but the creek runs just over the rise|
The room is in what is the Clare Court Children's Services centre A kindergarten A Long Day Child Care, MCH Offices, and Play Group set in a garden on the edge of Stony Creek.
|Typical MCH Office space|
It is just off Williamstown Road before the Freeway access so just 8 minutes form home and handy to anywhere in the west, with easy access from Ballarat and Geelong Road and the Geelong Rd Freeway
|My toys and high chair can stay there.|
