Pennant Hills War Memorial Children’s Centre will benefit from an injection of funds with two State Government grants funding improvements at the pre-school.

Member for Hornsby Matt Kean MP delivered a cheque for $35,000 from the Community Building Partnership Grant and the Quality Learning Environment grant. This will see new soft-fall installed in the outside play areas and new flooring throughout the inside of the pre-school.

“Pennant Hills War Memorial has been a part of our community for 70 years and I am pleased to be able to see them make improvements at the school,” Mr Kean said.

The preschool is a community based not-for-profit and has students aged between 3 and 6 years old.

“The NSW State Government is committed to ensuring our local pre-schools have the best possible facilities available for teachers and students,”

“This is about making sure our youngest members of the community have the best start for their educational journey,” Mr Kean said.

Director of the Pennant Hills War Memorial Children’s Centre Jill Crispe looks forward to taking advantage of the upgrades.

“We are so pleased to be receiving this grant to upgrade our softfall. The safety of our children is one of our highest priorities and the new softfall will give our playground a facelift.” Ms Crispe said.
