Centre for Community Child Health (CCCH)

CCCH turns 21!

Established in 1994, the Centre for Community Child Health (CCCH) works in partnership with communities to support the health, development and wellbeing of all children.


Supporting children’s brain development

From conception, babies and children are actively growing their brains to form the foundation for their future – and the future of all of Australia. Educators, teachers and, of course, families, play a major role. Find out more in our latest edition of Grow & Thrive.

Sleep and settling

Sleep can be a very difficult part of the early months of a child’s life. Read our new issue of Community Paediatric Review for research into supporting families and babies to get off to a strong (well rested) start.

Brain Builders presents the science of how children’s brains develop, using animation to make the complex simple and accessible.
