The Coalition Government will provide $3 million towards a $4.2 million project for the Guyra Early Learning Centre to re-locate to a new, fit-for-purpose centre.
The modern facilities will double childcare spaces and include a carpark, making it easier for the Guyra community to access increased employment or study opportunities.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said the local families and staff of the Guyra Early Childhood Learning Centre will benefit greatly from the revamped centre.
“Childcare in regional Australia and especially in my electorate of New England is a top priority, that’s why the Coalition Government is committing $3 million to improve those services in Guyra,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
“This new facility will double childcare spaces, equating to an additional 29 spaces per day for children six years and under, also including thirty out of school hours care or holiday care spaces.
“The proposed location for the new centre will create a one-stop community and learning precinct, which will soon become part of the fabric of the Guyra CBD and community.”
Armidale Regional Council anticipates this project to have a significant impact on the Guyra community through increased employment opportunities, greater access to learning and study environments and the ability to meet higher quality childcare standards.
Only the Coalition will deliver for the residents of Guyra and this announcement is part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
