First round of Building Blocks projects announced

The Victorian Government is repairing, expanding and building new kinders so every child can access Three-Year-Old Kindergarten as the program rolls out across the state.

Minister for Education James Merlino announced 13 projects across Victoria that will share in more than $13.8 million in the first round of grants under the Building Blocks program.

Building Blocks aims to deliver the necessary early childhood infrastructure required to give students the best start to their schooling, which includes access to appropriate technology, made possible by a series of 'improvement' grants.

"We're delivering unprecedented investment in early childhood services so our children can get the most out of great local kindergartens and set them up for the future," Merlino said.

Applications for phase one improvement grants have closed, though the government hopes to make a similar round of funding available in 2021. Further info is available here.
