Our Children's Facilities Capital Program has provided 'minor grants' to local councils and other early learning service providers for small refurbishments, expansions and IT development at Victorian kindergartens.
We also provided 'major grants' for new early childhood services or larger upgrades.
Applications for the 2018-19 Children's Facilities Capital Program Minor Grants round closed on 31 July 2018. Successful applicants were announced on 18 July 2018.
Three types of minor grants were offered:
Minor Infrastructure Expansion Grants These grants contributed towards the cost of small refurbishment projects designed to increase the usable space of a licensed service.
Minor Infrastructure Refurbishment Grants These grants contributed towards the cost of small refurbishment projects designed to enhance education and care for children attending a funded kindergarten program. The grants could be used to improve any indoor or outdoor spaces used by children during the program, including bathrooms, particularly where they are designed to improve access for children of all abilities.
Information Technology Grants These grants contributed to the cost of desktops, laptops, tablets and televisions for administrative use or learning programs.
