More kinder places are coming

More kinder places are coming soon.

Two kindergarten projects will create more than 120 new preschool places for Wyndham kids.

Then-Early Childhood and Pre-Prep Minister Ingrid Stitt announced $5.75 million for the projects in September.

The redevelopment of the Mossfiel Integrated Family Centre (interim name) in Hoppers Crossing will deliver up to 83 new places, supported by a $3 million investment to modernise the service.

These upgrades will include three modular kindergarten rooms, providing adaptable learning spaces.

A further $2.75 million will support the redevelopment of the Jamieson Way Kindergarten in Point Cook.

The facility will be expanded to three rooms, with space for an extra 40 children to attend the service each day.

“We’re investing in the future of our littlest learners through our Best Start, Best Life reforms – delivering new and upgraded kinders across the state, so more children and families can access two years of free, quality kindergarten close to home,” Ms Stitt said.

Both projects are part of a $47 million Building Blocks Partnership with Wyndham City Council that will create more than 3600 local kindergarten places across 17 early childhood services by 2029.
