A purpose-built Early Education and Care Centre was officially opened today creating 50 new places for early education and providing a support hub for the community of West Dubbo.
Minister for Early Childhood Education Sarah Mitchell and Member for Dubbo Troy Grant joined the local community in opening the new Gowrie NSW Dubbo Early Education and Care Centre.
"It is a real privilege to celebrate with the Dubbo community today with the opening of the centre and to be part of the launch of the Reconciliation Action Plan," Mrs Mitchell said.
"Quality early learning is one of the best investments we can make and the NSW Government aims to provide access for all children to receive the best possible early education."
Member for Dubbo Troy Grant congratulated Gowrie NSW on their focus on inclusion and working in close collaboration with the Aboriginal community.
"This centre provides a new early learning environment and is also a great space for community events and programs that encourage inclusiveness throughout the region," Mr Grant said.
"I am proud to be the local member of a community that is a beacon of inclusion through their support, education and information on cultural inclusiveness to children, families and childcare centres."
Gowrie NSW has been a leader in early childhood education for 75 years and provides education and care, family support and professional development services.
