The Victorian Government has announced a number of measures to improve Early Childhood Education outcomes. These include increasing hours and funding across 3 and 4 year old kindergarten. In response to these announcements, we have carefully considered how we maximise access for children in our community both now and in the future. We are excited to announce that Ferguson Park will be expanding in 2023 to operate the neighbouring Hurstbridge Preschool site enabling us to extend the number of hours for our three-year-old preschool program to 6 hours as well as offering additional places. We thank Nillumbik for both the support and additional infrastructure they provide, without which, this expansion would not be possible. We thank you for your support during this transition and look forward to continuing to deliver a high quality service which meets the needs of the community and our families.
