Free dental checks are coming to Langwarrin Community Centre - ongoing monthly basis

Children who are enroled in the Centre's Before and After school care and/or School holiday program will be eligible for a free dental health check with visiting dentists from 32 Pearls dental Langwarrin.  

Introducing children to the dentist in a familiar comfortable environment away from the clinical setting helps create a happy, stress free dental check that will provide a positive experience and memory for future dental visits.  

The check up will involve a visual inspection of your child's oral health by the dentist, using only a disposable mirror which your child gets to keep along with some other goodies.  A note of advice will be sent home to parents with any recommendations.

We're gearing up to engage the childrens interest and excitement for this wonderful opportunity and will be distributing parental permission forms via email and at After/Before school care shortly.

Please don't hesitate to give us a call if you would like any further information  - 9789 7653


Due to unexpected circumstances the meeting for 23rd March has been cancelled.

The next meeting will likely be in one months time and we will keep you posted about the date.


The After Shot! Wow - *Fantastic Faith* Thanks Langwarrin for your generosity in helping Faith raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave. With your help Faith raised $1,555 - How awesome is that!

Local lass 10 year old ~Faith~ is going for the world's greatest shave!

Wow - That's awesome!
Faith is an amazing person. She's thoughtful, brave too, always looking for opportunities to support Community - near and far.

Today, 34 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma, and they’ll turn to the Leukaemia Foundation for help.

We'd love you to join with us to support her efforts to help others. You can do so by throwing some coins into the Money Spinner in our foyer at the Community Centre.

The money spinner is so much fun! the coins roll round and round, fantastic to watch and hear-bring the kids to see it.
Do drop in when you're passing

With the start of the new school year there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of cars utilising the Centre car park between 3.00pm and 3.30pm, to wait for and collect children.
We have witnessed a number of close calls between cars vs cars and cars vs pedestrians within the car park and are greatly concerned for the safety of children and youth accessing the Centre after school.
As much as we would like to offer families the use of our facilities it is impractical, with the car parking area unable to accommodate the sheer volume of traffic within the time period mentioned.
Our duty of care requires (though it is with regret) that we advise families we are unable to provide parking to wait for and collect children who are not attending a Centre program. Specifically, Centre users only between 3.00pm and 3.30pm on school days.
Be assured we are currently working with Frankston City Council, Langwarrin Township Committee and the schools in Warrandyte Road to find a solution to current parking issues.
Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation - it is greatly appreciated. We will keep you posted with relevant information regarding this issue as we can.

The official opening of the Langwarrin Men's Shed on Friday 24th July at the Shed and adjoining Langwarrin Hall was an exciting event. A snapshot of the day - Take a look


Our foyer, reception and bathroom renovations are now complete. Front door access is restored and the new welcoming look is fantastic.

You may already be aware that the Centre has been under new management for around a year now and part of the new vision for the Centre has been to promote friendly and supportive outreach to Langwarrin's community, other like organisations and the public in general.

Opening up our foyer area for a more welcoming entrance is symbolic of our desire toward realising that vision.

We would like to thank all of our clients and families for their patience for the duration of the works.

We also thank Frankston City Council, site manager Brendan O'Riley and all those involved in the renovations for their support, expertise and a job well done.

Please feel free to make any suggestions you think may assist us in reaching our goal - your feedback is always appreciated. Images here


The Langwarrin Community Centre supports the submission and recommendations Seniors Rights Victoria made to the Royal Commission into Family Violence.

Elder abuse is vastly under-reported. The World Health Organisation estimates that up to 10 per cent of older people worldwide are affected.

The latest Seniors Rights Victoria data compiled by the National Ageing Research Institute shows that financial abuse and psychological/emotional abuse together are the most common forms of abuse reported by older Victorians.

92.3% of abuse is perpetrated by people related to the older person or in a de facto relationship. 66.8% of abuse is perpetrated by a child of the older person.
