TWO Fraser Coast schools have been included in Queensland’s expanded State Delivered Kindergarten program.
Brooweena State School and Rainbow Beach State School are among the 14 new kindy services launched across remote and rural parts of the State.
The program was introduced in 2016 to give more children in rural and remote parts of Queensland access to kindy.
Education Minister Grace Grace said 134 kindy programs are now being 116 rural and remote state schools.
“The expansion of this program means up to 177 extra children will have the opportunity to attend a face-to face kindy program at their local state school,” Ms Grace said.
“And up to 800 children are anticipated to attend State Delivered Kindergarten across Queensland during this year.
“This is a no-cost program for Queensland families with four-year-old children in selected rural and remote locations.”
