Organisations which raise awareness of the importance of early years education stand to benefit from grants of up to $20,000 as part of the B4 Early Years Coalition (B4) Grants which opened 1 September.


The B4 Early Years coalition represents part of the Tasmanian Government’s commitment to providing quality early learning and development experiences for young children “regardless of where they live or their family background.”


By recognising that all communities have a voice in the early years conversation, Tasmanian Minister for Education and Training Jeremy Rockliff said, “we can support every child to thrive by developing and distributing useful resources for engaging and encouraging involvement.”


Over $170,000 is available as part of the program, with eligible organisations encouraged to apply for grants up to $20,000 to undertake the project and share their stories.


“We believe engagement in high quality learning sets children up for life, which is why the Government is investing in initiatives such as Working Together which provides opportunities for eligible young Tasmanians to engage with up to 400 hours of free early learning” Mr Rockliff said.


Applications remain open until Wednesday 30 September 2020 with further information available here
