A new $2m kinder will be built in Narre Warren North as part of a state-wide three-year-old kinder rollout.
Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan announced that a new two room kindergarten would be built at the Harkaway Hills College site.
This new facility is estimated to provide capacity for 33 three-year-old’s, and 66 four-year-old’s ahead of the state-wide three-rear-old kinder roll-out in 2022.
The State Government is contributing $1.5 million towards the $2.04 million project.
The project is part of 13 projects across Victoria that Education Minister James Merlino announced will share in more than $13.8 million in first round of grants under the Building Blocks program to boost local jobs and businesses.
This is part of the State Government’s $5 billion investment in funded universal three-year-old kinder for all Victorian children – in an Australian-first.
Meanwhile, Bass MP Jordan Crugnale has announced Clyde North Moroak Crescent YMCA Early Learning Centre will receive $1650 through the Building Blocks IT grants program.
It is one of 12 kindergartens in the Bass electorate that will receive funding to purchase essential IT equipment including laptops, iPads to smart TVs to support and improve their learning environment.
