Family center

The special thing about a family center is that it is based on a family-oriented approach.
As a certified family center, successfully recertified in 2020, we also offer offers for families from the district of Burgsteinfurt in addition to the educational offers that are based on the educational agreement of NRW.
The St. Willibrord family center creates freedom for children and parents by offering offers that enable all families to continue their education, get information, get involved, get support and advice and attend events.


We offer

  1. Advice and support for children and families,
  2. Family formation and educational partnership,
  3. Childcare and
  4. Compatibility of family and work.

We rely on our cooperation partners such as the Caritas early support center, the advice center for parents, children and young people, the specialist advice for child day care in the district of Steinfurt, the Turnerbund Burgsteinfurt.

In the following you will find the contact details of our cooperation partner. Here you can open the contact details in a flyer.
