Children's ward to stay open
Top of the class
A WOMAN from The Channon has been lauded in State Parliament as Lismore MP Thomas George demanded the Government lift funding for community pre-schools.
“I pay tribute to Bianca Urbina from The Channon. She has been a great advocate for early childhood education,” he said. “Bianca has represented the area very well as co-ordinator of the Children’s Choice Preschool Campaign.
She has brought to my attention that a few weeks ago NSW released its agreement with the Federal Government to work toward achieving universal access to early childhood education.”
The average fee for NSW preschools is $28 a day, compared with a national average of less than $30 a week.
