CHILDREN at five preschool and day care centres across the Inverell Shire will enjoy safer learning spaces this year, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today announcing the facilities would share in $88,775 through the State Government’s Quality Learning Environments program.

 

Mr Marshall visited Catherine Campbell Long Day Care Centre at Inverell last week, where $14,900 will be spent installing a new perimeter fence.

 

“The play area at Catherine Campbell Long Day Care Centre encourages children to be adventurous and develop their confidence,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“To ensure children remain safe in their learning a new metal fence will be built around the perimeter of the centre.

 

“There are up to 58 students at the centre each day and given the busy street it fronts, ensuring they are safe is the number one priority of the staff.

 

“While these improvements are about security, the new fence will provide the centre with a fresh welcoming look.

 

“I’m looking forward to returning to see the new fence in place and the great work being done to educate and support Inverell’s youngest residents.”

 

Mr Marshall said exciting projects were also funded at other preschools in Inverell, Tingha and Ashford.

 

“Kindamindi Preschool will continue its facility upgrade with $15,000 to purchase an acoustic sound tree,” he said.

 

“Playground safety at Little Sprouts Early Learning Centre, Jack and Jill Preschool Inverell, Tingha Preschool and Ashford Preschool will be enhanced with each facility installing or replacing soft fall in their playgrounds.”

 

The NSW Government’s Quality Learning Environments (QLE) grants early childhood education facilities with funding of up to $15,000 to purchase resources and activities which improve physical or educational learning environments.

 

They can also be used to provide specialised educational programs for children to address identified educational needs.
