Council supporting Kinder campaign

2 Aug 2018

Whitehorse Council is proud to support the Municipal Association of Victoria’s (MAV) I Love Kinder campaign.

The MAV has been campaigning to the federal government on behalf of Victorian councils to continue funding their share of 15 hours of kindergarten per child per week.

Whitehorse Councillor Ben Stennett said the Federal Government currently funds five hours of kinder per week, with the state government funding the remaining 10 hours.

“The campaign is also pushing for a long term commitment to the National Quality Agenda, which oversees regulation and quality assessment of all early childhood education and care services,” Cr Stennet said

“Council is currently contacting all kinders in Whitehorse to encourage them to take part in the campaign.”
