Preschool receives funding

The Point Preschool at Oyster Bay has received $15,000 in state government funding to replace damaged playground equipment and purchase a new outdoor table and chairs.

State Member for Miranda Eleni Petinos said the preschool received an early payment under the NSW government's Quality Learning Environments program, which helps support the delivery of quality early childhood education for children across NSW.

"Between severe weather events and COVID-19, our community has faced a number of recent challenges," Ms Petinos said.

"Early learning services like The Point Preschool play a critical role in supporting children and families, and this funding is being made available to support their work.

"I am delighted that children at The Point Preschool will benefit from repairs to damaged playground equipment and purchasing a timber table and chairs."

The Quality Learning Environments program provides grants of up to $15,000 to eligible early childhood services to purchase resources and activities that improve physical or educational learning environments.

Early payments are now being made available to some services that indicated an urgent need for funding.

This includes quality improvement initiatives to meet the needs of services impacted by bushfire and recent severe weather events or emergency situations, such as COVID-19.
