Member for Malvern, Michael O’Brien, together with Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development, Wendy Lovell, today announced a local kindergarten will receive funding in the announcement of the Victorian Coalition Government’s record investment in early childhood infrastructure.
Michael congratulated Sunnyside Kindergarten at East Malvern on its $300,000 grant which will be used to deliver a $700,000 project.
The project will see the construction of an additional room with capacity for 33 places and a multi-purpose consulting/meeting room with waiting space.
“This is great news for local children, not just now, but well into the future,” Michael said.
“This grant shows just how committed the Victorian Coalition Government is to educating our youngest children and setting them up for a life of learning.
“I’m especially proud that a local kindergarten has received much needed funding to help increase its capacity and prepare for 15 hours in the year before school as part of the Universal Access agreement,” Mr O’Brien said.
