Sorell Child and Family Learning Centre

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 Sorell Child and Family Centre 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 place where you can get advice on health and family matters, education and training.  It is a welcoming place for families and young children that provides a range of services to support families with health and wellbeing, education and care needs to children from birth to age 5.
