Pre-school redevelopment kind of exciting for kindies

By Riverine Herald

THE development of the new Leitchville Pre-school is about to reach a key milestone.

Sections of the building that will extend the former Leitchville library and child and maternal health facility into the town’s pre-school hub will be delivered to the construction site this month with the facility anticipated to be operational for term two.

Once completed, the new building will provide better facilities for three and four-year-old kinder programs, along with the potential to offer different services for families and children.

“The redevelopment of the Leitchville Pre-school is an exciting project for people in the district,” Gannawarra Shire mayor Lorraine Learmonth said.

“Pre-school enrolments at Leitchville increased by one quarter this year, and the completion of these works will benefit children in the area for many years to come.

“The community of Leitchville is looking forward to a new building that meets current standards.’’

This project is supported by a $314,000 commitment from the Victorian Department of Education and Training’s annual children’s capital grant program, which supports the provision of high quality early years programs for children and their families.
