Innovation in action at Jacaranda Preschool

CHILDREN at Grafton's Jacaranda Preschool this week had a special visit from Minister for Early Childhood Education Leslie Williams and Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis.

Mrs Williams said the preschool had achieved a rating exceeding the National Quality Standard - a significant achievement for the service - and she wanted to see innovative teaching in action.

"Maintaining such a high standard of service delivery in early childhood education is no simple task," she said.

"I commend the centre for its diligence and dedication to ensuring that children at their centre are receiving high quality care and education."

Mr Gulatpis said Jacaranda Preschool Kindergarten had received an additional $100,000 under the NSW Government's preschool funding model, introduced at the beginning of 2014.

"This is a huge increase for the service and I am proud that the NSW Government has been able to further support the amazing work the teachers do," Mr Gulaptis said.

"The teachers at Jacaranda Preschool instil a love of learning in children from a young age and they carry it with them through life."
