Some of Mudgee’s littlest learners will be safer as they play thanks to funding from the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnerships program.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said Mudgee Community Preschool has received $9094 to replace fencing and gates at the South Mudgee centre.
“Playing is one of the most important ways our kids learn, not to mention the physical benefits, but they need to be able to do it safety,” Mr Saunders said.
“This grant will allow Mudgee Community Preschool to install higher fencing and gates around the playground, and actually make it more accessible for children with a disability.
“The upgrade will also expand the veggie patch at the back of the playground, making it easier for wheelchairs to navigate so more kids can benefit from the terrific outdoor learning environment.”
Mudgee Community Preschool director Rosie Gibbs said the upgrade wouldn’t have been possible without the funding.
“We’re really grateful because there’s things you dream of doing but without the funding, the work wouldn’t be able to be done,” Ms Gibbs said.
“We’re always aiming to reduce barriers to access so this funding is fantastic.”
