Keeping community kindergartens in Yuroke connected

The Andrews Labor Government is helping the State Library Victoria provide important IT services and support to kindergartens in Melbourne’s outer north.

The support provided by the State Library is highly valued among independently run kindergartens in the Yuroke electorate, which often struggle to meet the IT demands of running a high-quality early childhood education.

Our Government will provide $4 million over three years to secure this program into the future.

The program allows the State Library to provide a range of free internet services to community-based, not-for-profit kindergarten services and cluster managers – including free internet connectivity, help desk support and face-to-face IT training.

The renewed agreement runs until 2019 and also includes guidelines around privacy, cyber safety and effective ways for technology to be used in the classroom.

Our Government is making Victoria the Education State – this starts with giving every child the best start in life.
