The Sorell Child and Family Learning Centre will be constructed on the Sorell School site, providing critical services for children and families in the Sorell area and surrounds.

The new Child and Family Learning Centre (CFLC) will offer a variety of services to support you, all in one place. It is somewhere you and your child can make friends and they can learn as they play. It’s a welcoming place where you can get advice on health and family matters, education and training. For families and young children, its a friendly and caring environment that supports you with health and wellbeing services for children from birth to age 5.
