THE Labor state government has announced a $2.6 million funding boost for Bonbeach Primary School for the construction of a new early centre for pre-schoolers.
The funding is not reliant on the upcoming state election, and is budgeted under the 2018-19 round of the Children’s Facilities Capital Program.
The rebuilt preschool will be constructed alongside Bonbeach Primary School’s $6.3 million new main school building announced in March.
Minister for Early Childhood Education Jenny Mikakos and Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny visited Bonbeach Primary School to announce the funding.
“Three-year-old kinder is the smartest investment we can make and it is something that will have real impact on families right across Victoria, including here in Carrum,” Ms Kilkenny said.
“Universal access to three-year-old kinder is an Australian-first and make no mistake, this will change lives.”
