Murrindindi Children's Network

We believe that every family is important and we want to be part of creating an environment where families can flourish!

Murrindindi Children's Network was formed in 2012 as a way for agencies and others providing care and services for children and families to collaborate more closely.

The members of the Murrindindi Children's Network meet on the third Monday of every second month at 10.30am at the Murrindindi Shire Council Offices in Perkins Street, Alexandra and the third Wednesday of every alternate month at 1pm at the Yea Chambers. We always welcome new members.

Our Murrindindi Children's Network Facebook page is a great place to find information relevant to children and families in Murrindindi Shire. We will provide links, tips, information and laughs. Raising children is a difficult job, but no one ever said you can't have fun!

We would love your interaction and comments! We can all learn something new through discussion. As long as comments on our Facebook page are made respectfully, no one will be given time out!

We encourage you to share our Facebook page with your family and friends, the more the merrier! It takes a village to raise a child and we'd like to be part of that village. 

If you would like more information or you have a question please feel free to contact the Children's Services Unit at Murrindindi Shire Council on (03) 5772 0356 or email sporter@murrindindi.vic.gov.au.
