The Victorian Government recognises that access to high quality early years services are central to giving every Victorian child the best start in life.
Families deserve a choice of flexible, accessible and affordable early childhood education and care services, including kindergarten programs delivered in a range of settings, alongside other key services such as Maternal and Child Health, early childhood intervention services, playgroups and family services.
The Victorian Government is delivering a record $123.6 million to build, expand and improve early years infrastructure across Victoria to ensure local families can continue to access great local kindergartens, including $10 million targeting growth areas. This investment through the Children’s Facilities Capital Program will support the provision of high quality early years programs for children and their families by:
- increasing infrastructure capacity to deliver kindergarten program for children in the year before school
- promoting integrated service delivery at one location where families can access early childhood education and care, health and development and family services
- improving access to local and responsive early childhood services for children from vulnerable and/or disadvantaged families
- establishing early childhood infrastructure on or near school sites.
