Staff at Oberon Children’s Centre will be provided with special training thanks to an $10,000 from the NSW Government.
The grant will contribute to providing staff development opportunities, educational resource development and engaging community members. Children who attend the centre will also benefit by having weekly Indigenous language classes run by a local elder.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole announced the support as part of the Early Childhood Community Grants program.
He met with staff and students at Oberon Early Learning to personally deliver the good news.
“This grant will provide staff development opportunities such as training and conferences that promote outreach to Aboriginal children and children from low income families,” Mr Toole said.
“The community has faced a number of challenges over the past few years and early learning services play a critical role in supporting children and families.
“It’s fantastic to see this funding being made available to support the work of the services that Oberon Children’s Centre provides.”
