IT IS A GREAT WEEK FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES IN THE CENTRAL GOLDFIELDS SHIRE!
Labor Member for Western Victoria, Jaala Pulford, has announced 5 early childhood services offering funded kinder in 2021 in Central Goldfields Shire will share in over $170,000 of early childhood School Readiness Funding. Congratulations to A G Leech Kindergarten, T L Stone Memorial Kindergarten, Dunolly Kindergarten, Paisley Park Early Learning Centre Maryborough, and Goldfields Children's Centre.
Additionally, we applaud the announcement from Victoria State Government this morning regarding funding for Kindergarten programs from 2021 onwards that will deliver free 3 year-old and 4 year-old kindergarten and support for more outside school hours care – easing financial strain on families and ensuring more kids are getting a great early childhood education.
To all our collaborators and supporters, we hope that you celebrate these investments in social change for children and families and your part in it.
We will continue to advocate for Government to work differently to make a difference.
Central Goldfields Shire Council has launched their 2020-2021 Community Grants Program. Do you have a great system / model for support in your neighbourhood / community that could be even better with a little funding? Why not partner with a local charity or volunteer organisation to apply?
The Council encourages applicants to consider the ongoing needs of our communities recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.
We all have people that we care for, and who care for us, and we all care in different ways. Whatever way you show it, let's remember to acknowledge it and give thanks this National Carers Week. #WhyWeCareThere are 2.65 million carers in Australia who provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends.
Under pandemic conditions, the job of caring has become an even more difficult one. So let’s recognise, celebrate and support carers this National Carers Week #WhyWeCare
You can help to paint an authentic picture of caring in Australia by sharing your caring story with the community: carersweek.com.au/your-stories/tell-us-why-you-care
