Not-for-profit community and mobile preschools and not-for-profit long day care services across the State who have been affected by the challenges of 2020 will benefit from early payments of the NSW Government’s Quality Learning Environments program.

Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning Sarah Mitchell said the Quality Learning Environments program helps to support the delivery of quality early childhood education for children across NSW.

“Between bushfires and COVID-19 our communities have faced a number of challenges. Early learning services play a critical role in supporting children and families, and this funding is being made available to support the work of these services,” Ms Mitchell said.

“The NSW Government is committed to strengthening education for early learners, and we are showing this support by making these payments early to services who need them.”

The Quality Learning Environments program provides grants of up to $15,000 to eligible early childhood services to purchase resources and activities which improve physical or educational learning environments.

Early payment is being made available to those services that have indicated an urgent need for funding. This may include quality improvement initiatives to meet the needs of services impacted by bushfire and recent severe weather events or other emergency situations such as COVID-19.

Further grant applications not requiring early payment will be progressed in December 2020.
