Victorian child care services receive $80m boost
Child care services across Victoria have received an $80 million boost over the last 18 months, with Belmont Community Kindergarten the latest to benefit from the cash injection.
Announcing the official opening of the new playroom at the centre, state minister for children and early childhood development Wendy Lovell said building extension would benefit families living in residential property around the region.
She commented: "This brand new wing has enabled the Belmont Community Kindergarten to offer both three and four-year-old kindergarten to 123 children."
Families looking at buying a house in the area may be interested in the development, which will significantly enhance the quality of child care services.
"This fantastic new building is a great example of why the Victorian Coalition government allocated more than $80 million to early childhood infrastructure in its first 18 months," Ms Lovell explained.
The opening at Belmont kindergarten follows a number of other renovations and completion of play rooms at childhood facilities across the state.
Other centres to receive major works include Early Learning Hub in Grovedale, Barwon Heads Kindergarten, a new integrated children's centre at Leopold, Geelong West Kindergarten and Kardinia Kids Early Learning and Care at Bell Post Hill.
