NORTHERN Grampians Shire Council has reviewed Children's Services and has confirmed it will continue to provide high quality care and education for the youngest members of the community at the Taylors Gully Children's Centre and at the St Arnaud Children's Precinct.
Qualified and experienced educators offer some of the best childcare and early learning services in the region.
The centre caters for long day care, three and four year old kindergarten, playgroup and maternal and child health services.
While council will reduce the financial subsidy it currently provides to run children's services throughout the shire, this will not affect the high standard of care that is given to the children and families who use the centres.
Changes to budget management, payment arrangement, and technology behind the scenes will ensure that the subsidy being paid by ratepayers is gradually reduced over the next three years.
This will not impact on the quality of the service provided at the centres.
Council has ensured that residents of Stawell and surrounds have real options when it comes to caring for the wellbeing and development of children.
Northern Grampians Shire Council is proud of the quality of centre facilities and the unique mix of services provided.
Council welcomes the public to call in and take a look at Taylors Gully in action during the day.
People can see for themselves how council is working towards a better lifestyle and environment for all members of the community.
Taylors Gully Children's Centre is the place for children to learn, grow and thrive.
