Local Member’s Georgie Crozier and Andrea Coote announce that Oakleigh Primary School Kindergarten has been successful in the Victorian Coalition Government’s recent minor capital grants.
Local Member Georgie Crozier said the $6925 grant will assist the service to purchase a compactus and four mobile storage units.
“The grant comes at a great time for Oakleigh as it’s just in time for the beginning of term one,” Georgie Crozier said.
Local Member Andrea Coote said, “These are valuable projects that enhance the way families and children use, enjoy and engage with their local early years services.”
Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell said the minor grants were announced as part the Coalition Government’s recently announced $20 million children’s capital grants program.
Further grants to be announced are:
• New Early Learning Facilities Grants - worth up to $650,000 to support communities to establish new early learning facilities to meet demand for kindergarten places.
• Early Learning Facility Upgrade Grants - worth up to $350,000 to support existing services to upgrade and extend their facilities to meet the demand of kindergarten places.
“Importantly, the capital grants will deliver modern infrastructure to parts of the state where demand for early childhood education and care services is strongest.”
