The New South Wales Government has provided a further two rounds of funding to the Guyra Preschool and Long Daycare, which will be put towards purchasing interactive smartboards and outdoor play equipment.

 

Armidale Regional Council General Manager James Roncon said the projects “will greatly enhance the experience of the children attending the facility”.

 

“While Council considers the feasibility for a new preschool, it is important we continue to nurture the existing facility by providing equipment and resources needed to boost the overall quality of education,” he added.

 

New interactive smart boards will be purchased and installed using $20,000 of Community Building Partnership funding to provide children with “a state of the art learning experience.”

 

“The smart boards will be installed at the existing centre and moved to the new facility if it goes ahead,” Mr Roncon explained.

 

Outdoor play will be supported after the service received $13,873 of Quality Learning Environment Funding to go towards new outdoor climbing equipment, as the current equipment is no longer fit for purpose due to its age. 

 

The new play equipment will also be moved to the new facility should it go ahead.
