SCHOOL READINESS FUNDING
AN INVESTMENT IN EARLY LEARNING
The Victorian Government has already commenced the roll out of a $58.1 million investment in early childhood learning and development to ensure Victorian children receive the best start to their education journey.
School Readiness Funding is an initiative that will ensure areas of the state facing disadvantages in education get the support they need.
All funded kindergarten and long day care services are eligible for funding, which can be used on a wide variety of resources, supports, allied health professionals and early childhood experts.
The goal of this initiative, according to the Victorian Department of Education & Training, is "to give all Victorian children an equal chance to develop their confidence, resilience and readiness to learn."
