QUAKERS HILL PRESCHOOLS RECEIVE $30,000 FROM NSW GOVERNMENT GRANTS
Written on the 2 July 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly has welcomed the news that two preschools in Quakers Hill will benefit from a total of $30,000 in funding shared equally to go towards enhancing the quality of their service.
Mr Conolly visited both centres this week to announce and congratulate Blacktown City Council and preschool centre staff on being successful in applying for the NSW Government's Quality Learning Environments fund, namely:
Kids' Early Learning Quakers Hill Preschool at 121 Farnham Rd, and
Kids' Early Learning Blacktown City Quakers Hill North at 7 Lalor Rd.
"These preschools are showing an ongoing commitment to ensuring children in the local area have access to top quality early childhood education, which, as the local Member, makes me very proud," Mr Conolly said.
Minister for Early Childhood Education Sarah Mitchell said she is extremely proud of the Quality Learning Environments fund and the response from the sector has been overwhelmingly positive.
"Not only will this funding improve the quality of the learning environment for children right across the state, parents can also rest assured that their children are having the best start to their educational journeys as possible," Sarah Mitchell said.
"These preschools will be able to use this funding to replace their floor area with lino based material, allowing a more flexible and wear resistant use of their indoor play area," said Mr Conolly.
The Quality Learning Environments program was introduced in 2018 and is part of the NSW Government's $332 million Start Strong Program which was introduced in 2016 and has been extended to 2021.
