Kinder gives the youngest Victorians the very best start in life, and gives parents – particularly working mums – the choice to do what’s best for their families. That’s why we made kinder free, and with this Budget we’re building more kindergartens as part of our Best Start, Best Life reforms.
Every Victorian family, wherever they live, should be able to count on a quality local school. That’s why we’ve committed to building 100 new schools and delivering hundreds of upgrades right across the state.
This Budget provides $2.1 billion to build new schools and maintain and upgrade existing ones, bringing our total investment to more than $14.9 billion.
The Budget also includes a package of support which will transform the lives of students living with disability and their carers and families.
