The Greater City of Bendigo upgraded Axedale Preschool's outdoor play space to create a natural, sustainable and interesting space for families, children and the community.
The Victorian Government is committed to providing high quality early years programs to give every child the best start in life.
The Government, through the Children’s Facilities Capital Program, is supporting local governments and other service providers to invest in early childhood infrastructure. This funding will respond to growing demand for places, raise the quality of learning environments and improve access to services for children from vulnerable and/or disadvantaged families.
The upgrade features natural and recyclable items, a variety of surfaces and plantings, quiet sensory spaces, sustainable gardens and water tanks. The rejuvenated outdoor space provides opportunities for all children to learn, explore and experience nature.
