About the project

We’re building an early learning and childcare centre at Teesdale Primary School

The Victorian Government-owned centre will provide long day care and Three- and Four-Year-Old Kindergarten programs. 

The centre may also include other spaces for community use. 

From 2028 Four-Year-Old Kindergarten will begin the transition to Pre-Prep in Golden Plains Shire. Free kindergarten hours will double from 15 to 30 hours a week for 4-year-olds and triple from 5 to 15 hours for 3-year-olds by 2031. 

Building the centre at the school will help some parents avoid the double drop-off. It makes childcare and early learning accessible and convenient for working parents and carers. It can also make the transition to school easier for some children.

This centre is one of 50 early learning centres that will share in approximately $14 billion as part of the Victorian Government’s Best Start, Best Life reform.
