    The NSW Government today announced $4.5 million in grants for NSWs’ youngest learners. Minister for Early Childhood Education Sarah Mitchell announced through the Start Strong Pathways plan, that “children too young for preschool will benefit from $2 million in NSW Government funding for educational programs supporting children to prepare for preschool. Services like playgroups and toy libraries play a vital role in offering a pathway for our children into early childhood education”.



    The Minister said “Funding is available for not-for-profits that feel they can offer the educational component to children from birth to 3 years of age. Bigger organisations like Playgroup NSW may apply for a larger piece of the pie, to run something right across the state or a region, or it may relate to smaller organisations that towns for a more local approach”.

    Attending playgroup with his daughter, Silver, began as a necessity for Jonathon Smith when he couldn't get her into day care, but it has quickly become a favourite activity for both dad and daughter.

    Mr Smith is part of a growing group of fathers who regularly take their children to the weekly gatherings held across NSW, which last about three hours and include free play, arts and crafts, organised games and morning tea.
