Moama Preschool outgrows its building, adds additional 40 places

The Moama & District Preschool Centre has an additional 40 places to help ease pressure on its extensive waiting list following the relocation of the preschool and construction of a new facility which includes four adaptive learning rooms, two separate playgrounds, carpark, a staffroom, offices, bathroom and meeting room. 


For almost 50 years, the Preschool has supported the local community, and Murray River Council Mayor Frank Crawley said the official opening was an exciting time for the community who have been eagerly awaiting the completion of the new building for some years.


“We are thrilled that this important project is now finalised, enabling the Moama Preschool to provide quality educational services to so many more families,” he said.


With its new home the not-for-profit community-based preschool can reintroduce its room for three-year-olds to run alongside rooms for four- and five-year-olds.


“It is wonderful to see young families in the Murray will have access to a new preschool, providing our youngest learners with access to early education and care, and providing a boost to working parents,” Deputy Premier and Minister for Education and Early Learning Prue Car said. 


The need for a new building became a priority several years ago to ensure continued and improved early childhood learning opportunities for the growing population, with the Federal Government committing $2.9 million and the NSW Government and Murray River Council each allocating $1.5million.
