About Us

This website is brought to you by Shellharbour City Council, and supported by Barnardos Communities for Children Shellharbour.

Shellharbour Kids is a website for parents and carers of children aged 0  - 12 years, community workers and service providers.  It is managed by Shellharbour City Council's Community & Cultural Life Team.

The website is a work in progress. We want it to meet the needs of Shellharbour City's parents, carers, and people who work in our community, and therefore welcome your feedback. Please send any comments, additions, suggestions, or feedback to us at email shellharbourkids@shellharbour.nsw.gov.au.
