About Early Childhood and Family Service

Norfolk’s Early Childhood and Family Service is for all parents and carers with children aged 0-5 years. We offer support to families in their local area with drop-ins and groups. We also offer one to one support in the home. Our services include support families to get out and about and meet others, helping them to learn new things, enhancing the home learning environment, supporting the child’s development and keeping children safe. We work in partnership with lots of other services to make sure that families in Norfolk get the right support, at the right time, from the right service.
