CHILDREN attending Kookaburra Child Care Centre at Andergrove will cruise through the heat of summer in air-conditioned comfort thanks to a $15,000 grant to install new cooling units at the centre.

I met with staff and children at the centre to congratulate them on the own fundraising efforts and the centre’s success in securing funding under the Liberal National Government’s Stronger Communities Program.

This grant will help with the cost of air-conditioning three remaining rooms at Kookaburra Child Care Centre so the children at the centre will be learning in a comfortable, cool environment.

The centre has been working hard to save up funding of $40,000 and this grant of $15,000 will finally allow them to get the job done.

They’re expecting increased enrolments as a result, and I congratulate them on their efforts to improve facilities for the safety and comfort of the little people in their care.

The Stronger Communities Programme funds small capital projects, covering everything from upgrading community halls or sporting facilities, to building new bike paths, or providing essential equipment.
