The NSW Government today announced $4.5 million in grants for NSWs’ youngest learners. Minister for Early Childhood Education Sarah Mitchell announced through the Start Strong Pathways plan, that “children too young for preschool will benefit from $2 million in NSW Government funding for educational programs supporting children to prepare for preschool. Services like playgroups and toy libraries play a vital role in offering a pathway for our children into early childhood education”.
The Minister said “Funding is available for not-for-profits that feel they can offer the educational component to children from birth to 3 years of age. Bigger organisations like Playgroup NSW may apply for a larger piece of the pie, to run something right across the state or a region, or it may relate to smaller organisations that towns for a more local approach”.
