Over $7,800 in Australian Government funding will help to keep the sun off children at Florence Collins Children’s Services.

Mr Hawker said the funding would enable the Warrnambool child care centre to install sunshade sails over outdoor playground areas to meet health and safety requirements.

“Nearly $10 million has been provided Australia wide to help services with health and safety issues and provide resources for the repair and renovation of buildings and playgrounds,” he said.

“These improvements are vital to providing a safe and healthy environment for children in care and will go a long way towards assuring parents in Warrnambool that the highest quality care is being provided to their children.

“This funding will ensure Florence Collins is able to continue providing the excellent care that it has offered in the past.”

Families requiring more information about child care should call the Australian Government’s national Child Care Hotline on 1800 670 305.
