Child and Family Learning Centres are places where families and carers with children from pregnancy to age 5 can access a range of free services.
The purpose of the Centres is to support the health, wellbeing, and lifelong learning of our youngest Tasmanians. Centres have safe indoor and outdoor play spaces that help families build connection and belonging within their local community.
The goals of the Child and Family Learning Centres are to:
- improve the health and educational outcomes for children – birth to five years.
- provide a range of early years services in the local community to support the development of children birth to five years.
- build on the existing strengths of families and communities and assist in their educational needs.
- increase participation in early years programs such as those offered through Launching into Learning (LIL).
- build community capacity by developing partnerships with parents, carers and the community.
- respond to child and family needs in a seamless and holistic manner.
