Constituency Question- Mount Waverley Electorate

Mr FREGON (Mount Waverley) (17:52:25): (351) My constituency question is for the Minister for Education, and I ask: what will be the benefit of three-year-old kindergarten for the parents and young children of Mount Waverley in both educational and financial terms? Our electorate has many young families and our kindergartens are a source of pride for our community. Recently I had the honour of opening the brand-new playground at Highmount Kindergarten. This was only possible with an inclusive kindergarten facilities grant of $114 000, which is just another example of the great work this government is doing in the early childhood space. The babies born in our electorate from last year will be the first cohort to be able to enrol in free three-year-old kinder in the Mount Waverley district in 2022, and I am sure their parents would appreciate knowing how their babies will benefit from this great program.
