“Local families in this part of the state will have access to really high quality three and four-year-old kinder places over the next few years,” Ms Stitt said.

“The government will be contributing $2.7 million to that upgrade.”

The building is expected to be ready in time for next year’s kinder intake.

There will also be another 50 kinder places at the Haddon Pre-School Centre, south-west of Ballarat.
