Two Clayton early childhood services will share in Brumby Labor Government funding totalling $12.5 million for renovation and refurbishment works.

Member for Clayton, Hong Lim, said the centres were 2 of 223 services across the state to receive grants to upgrade their existing facilities.

“The Brumby Labor Government is taking action to give Victorian families access to the quality services they need so their children have the best possible opportunity to learn and develop to their full potential,” Hong Lim said.

Local centres to receive funding include:

  • Kanooka Childcare Centre Clayton $100,000, and
  • Norman Fischer (Kallay Street) Clayton South $35,000

“Locally these grants will be used for a range of works,”Mr. Lim said.

“The Kanooka Child Care Centre will be expanding the kinder room, installing bi-fold doors, building a covered outdoor area with works to the playground to ensure safety for visually impaired children. 

“The Kallay Street Preschool will be refurbishing the outdoor area by removing outdated structures, installing new soft fall flooring with new playground equipment.

“The renovation and refurbishment works to be carried out at these facilities have been identified by the services as important to help them maintain, grow and expand services to meet the needs of families in their area.

“It is fantastic that through these grants we are helping local kinders and childcare centres deliver the services and facilities that local families need.

“I look forward to seeing these works completed.”
