Wilson Street Kindergarten: expansion
Written on the 3 May 2012
Last Thursday I was pleased to be able to represent the Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development, Wendy Lovell, at the official launch of the newly renovated kindergarten space at Wilson Street Kindergarten in Brighton. The kindergarten plays a significant role in the local community, and the renovation has meant that the kindergarten will now have a further 30 hours of session times and a further 54 kindergarten places, including six additional places for children with special needs. The church hall where the renovation took place now has special acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling, which will allow for greater integration and an easier learning environment for children with hearing impairments, sensory processing disorders and autism spectrum disorder. Providing children who have special needs with a learning environment such as this will optimise their learning opportunities.
