The B4 Early Years Coalition (B4) is an initiative of the Tasmanian Government
and was launched in August 2016 with the name B4 representing the early years of a child’s life from pregnancy to age four. As a collective impact initiative, B4 connects, supports, engages with, and encourages, individuals and organisations to work together to ensure all children in Tasmania in the early years, reach their potential. From the very moment a life begins, a child’s experiences and environments will shape their lifelong learning, health and development.
"We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
