Aberdeen Preschool has received $10,000 in community grant funding from the NSW Government which will be used by the service to provide educational activities to help strengthen the foundations of children’s learning the two years before school.

 

Announcing the funding, Upper Hunter MP Dave Layzell said it will be used to purchase equipment and resources which support access and participation as well as educational resource development that promotes outreach to Aboriginal children and children from low income families.

 

To be eligible for funding under the NSW Government’s Community Grants program, a service must be either a not-for-profit community pre-school or not-for-profit long day care, and must also be an approved early childhood education and care service under the Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations or the Supplementary Provisions Act.

 

The service must also deliver an early childhood education program in accordance with The Early Years Learning Framework under the National Partnership Agreement on Early Childhood Education.

 

Multifunctional Aboriginal Children’s Services and Aboriginal Child and Family Centres are also eligible for grant funding.
