A New Chapter in the Story of Kalparrin Incredible Kids

We are excited to announce a merger of Kalparrin Incredible Kids with the Melbourne City Mission (MCM) Early Childhood Intervention Services

MCM and Kalparrin share a vision for the potential of our incredible kids and the role that Kalparrin is playing in the lives of children and families in North East Melbourne.

  • Services will continue to be run from the Kalparrin centre and Kalparrin staff will remain within the merged service.
  • The current services we offer will continue to be provided by the same therapists, ensuring minimal change for families accessing our services.

For Kalparrin staff, being part of a larger team will offer better professional support and further enhance the service they are providing to families.

Families will have the opportunity to access a wider group of highly skilled Therapists and Psychologists, as their child’s needs changes.

The merger with MCM has the potential to increase the range of services we offer to families in the Banyule, Nillumbik and Whittlesea areas.

Once COVID restrictions are lifted, our group programs can resume.

Kalparrin has been part of the lives of thousands of incredible kids and their families since 1974. Our merger with MCM guarantees the future of Kalparrin and the support we continue to provide to incredible kids and their families.
