The Victorian Government is refurbishing kindergartens and improving IT capabilities for the kindergartens of the future.

Applications have opened for the 2017-18 Children’s Facilities Capital Program Minor Grants round, helping kindergartens that need minor infrastructure improvements and IT assistance.

Minor infrastructure expansion grants of up to $25,000 can go towards the cost of small refurbishment projects designed to increase the usable space of a licenced service.

Minor infrastructure refurbishment grants of up to $10,000 can be used to improve any indoor or outdoor spaces used by children, particularly where they are designed to improve access for children of all abilities.

Information technology grants of up to $1,500 are also available to purchase desktops, laptops, tablets, and televisions that are used as part of learning programs or for administration use.

The Victorian Government is investing $60 million to build and upgrade hundreds of children’s centres and kindergartens across Victoria, including $10 million targeted at Melbourne growth areas.

The Victorian Government is making Victoria the Education State – this starts with giving every child a strong start in life.

Applications close on 6 June 2017 at 4pm and must be submitted online.
