FUNDING BOOST FOR PLAYGROUPS GIVES LOCAL KIDS A GREAT START
Local families will soon have access to more community playgroups as part of the
Andrews Labor Government’s $50,000 Great Start Community Playgroup Fund.
Mums N Bubs in Berwick has received a $1000 grant to establish a new playgroup and
Berwick Neighbourhood House received a $500 grant to expand their existing playgroup.
This much needed financial assistance will ensure that both groups can purchases
books, toys and play equipment as well as secure important mentoring support.
Playgroup Victoria is administering the grants and will assist and support the local groups as they establish their new playgroups.

“We know that children learn so much by playing and socialising with each other,
and it’s so very important that we ensure they can do just that at the very best local playgroups,”
“Playgroups play such an important role within our community and are a great way for parents and children to connect, make friends and establish support networks.”
