DoE- Child and Family Centres

Burnie Child and Family Centre

The Burnie CHild and Family Centre offers a place-based early childhood service model where families with children from pregnancy to five years can go to access a range of services. It works in partnership with families with the purpose of providing support that improves the health and wellbeing, early learning and care of our very young children. The Burnie CFC aims to improve access to quality services in local communities by providing a single point of contact for children and their families to connect with coordinated, universal, targeted and specialist services.
