Media Release – CCSA welcomes further early childhood investment

CCSA welcomes today’s announcement by NSW Minister for Early Childhood Education, Sarah Mitchell of two further investments in early childhood education and care:

  • the continuation of a $2.5 million community grants program to support the engagement of Aboriginal children and disadvantaged children in early childhood education, and
  • a new $2.0 million Start Strong Pathways program to support educational engagement of children prior to preschool and promote the importance of early childhood education to parents.

The Community Grants program will provide one-off grants of up to $7,000 for initiatives such as regular breakfasts, specialised staff, or transport initiatives to increase access for Aboriginal and disadvantaged children. In 2018, the program has also been extended to include metropolitan early childhood education services as well as regional and remote services. (more…)
