Early years pro­gram ex­ten­sion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

A new era in the pro­vi­sion of early years pro­grams in Hind­marsh Shire will start in 2019 with new ser­vices at Dim­boola, Nhill, Jeparit and Rain­bow.

Hor­sham and Dis­trict Kinder­garten As­so­ci­a­tion will pro­vide kinder­garten and child­care pro­grams at Dim­boola and Nhill and kinder­garten ser­vices at Jeparit and Rain­bow.

The as­so­ci­a­tion will take over ser­vices cur­rently pro­vided by Unit­ing, which has been re­spon­si­ble for early-years ed­u­ca­tion in Hind­marsh Shire for al­most 20 years.

Hind­marsh Shire mayor Ron Is­may, when an­nounc­ing the change of ser­vice provider, thanked Unit­ing for its ser­vice and wel­comed Hor­sham and Dis­trict Kinder­garten As­so­ci­a­tion as the new ser­vice provider.

He said the as­so­ci­a­tion would work with the coun­cil and Unit­ing to en­sure a smooth transition be­tween ser­vice providers.

The coun­cil has in­vited fam­i­lies to at­tend in­for­ma­tion ses­sions to learn more about what this change means for them and how to enrol in ser­vices for 2019.

Ses­sions will be at Dim­boola to­day, Jeparit on Mon­day and Rain­bow on Septem­ber 5. A Nhill ses­sion was yes­ter­day.

Peo­ple seek­ing more in­for­ma­tion can call the coun­cil’s com­mu­nity devel­op­ment co-or­di­na­tor Simon Lan­dri­gan on 5391 4444 or email slan­dri­gan@ hind­marsh.vic.gov.au.
