Na­tion­als com­mit to day care

Pilbara News - - Election 2017 - Tom Zaun­mayr

The WA Na­tion­als will com­mit $3 mil­lion to­wards the con­struc­tion of a new day-care cen­tre for Tom Price if re­turned to gov­ern­ment at the State elec­tion.

North West Cen­tral MLA Vince Cata­nia said the com­mu­nity had out­grown the cur­rent fa­cil­ity.

“A com­mit­ment of $3 mil­lion to­wards a new day-care fa­cil­ity with more than 125 places will pro­vide fam­i­lies in Tom Price the op­por­tu­nity to place their chil­dren in high qual­ity and mod­ern day care,” he said. “Many par­ents have told me that they would like to work but can­not be­cause of the lack of child­care fa­cil­i­ties in town.”

Mr Cata­nia said an up­graded child­care would help at­tract more fam­i­lies to the in­land Pil­bara town.

“Fam­i­lies par­tic­i­pate in lo­cal sport­ing and com­mu­nity groups as well as at­tend school and child care cen­tres,” he said.

“Great fa­cil­i­ties keep fam­i­lies in town en­sur­ing that we have stronger com­mu­ni­ties.”
