Support for Child Care Services in the South West

Seven child care services in the South West will share in the Federal Governments Community Child Care Fund.

Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino MP said, “This funding is critical in our South West local towns. In some circumstances this will keep the centre operating and in others will increase the number of children they can care for.”

“If we can help improve or expand facilities, more families in regional areas can remain in work. We can also help create more local jobs and opportunities to remain working in the local area.”

The seven local child care services to receive the funding are
• Annie’s Angels Play and Development Centre in Harvey
• Nature Alliance Family Day Care in Dunsborough
• Treehouse Childcare Centre in Donnybrook
• Naturaliste Community Centre in Busselton
• YMCA in Home Child Care and Family Day Care in Busselton
• Capel Childcare Centre in Capel
• Free Range on Grange Early Learning Centre in Nannup
