TRY South Yarra Preschool

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I recently visited the TRY South Yarra Preschool in the Horace Petty estate, where I joined children for an impromptu musical performance and a kick of the footy. TRY South Yarra Preschool provides quality child care to over 40 families in the South Yarra community.

When I first visited last year it appeared not to have been upgraded since it was originally built. It had inadequate cooling, the bathroom and kitchen were in a state of disrepair and the carpets were stained. It clearly needed attention. After urging the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing to provide funding to upgrade the kindergarten in this house, I am pleased to see that the kitchen, the bathroom and the common areas have now been refurbished and repainted and have new heating and new carpets installed. I look forward to visiting again and joining the kids for another kick of the footy.
