Kalkallo North Integrated Child, Family and Community Centre
The Andrews Labor Government will upgrade and improve kindergartens across Victoria under the rollout of the latest round of the Building Blocks grant program.
Member for Yuroke, Ros Spence MP today announced $3 million to help deliver the Kalkallo North Integrated Child, Family and Community Centre in partnership with Hume City Council.
Hume City Council is among the successful recipients of $10.2 million in funding to help deliver infrastructure, upgrades and new equipment under the latest round of the Building Blocks grant program.
Building Blocks helps improve kindergarten infrastructure in Victoria and is essential in the successful statewide roll-out of the Labor Government’s Three-Year-Old Kindergarten, which is a $5 billion Australian-first scheme to deliver 15 hours of funded three-year-old kindergarten programs to children by 2029.
As part of the roll-out, the Victorian Government is upgrading infrastructure through a $1.68 billion co-investment with the early childhood sector to build and expand kindergarten facilities across the state.
The Building Blocks Planning stream, which is open until March 20, will fund planning and pre-construction work on kindergarten projects that support Three-Year-Old Kindergarten.
