Kindilan Early Childhood Centre provides its infant students children with education and care that supports the important foundations to reach their potential.
The Tuncurry-based centre will be dedicating more recourses to this important support after taking out the May round of Greater Bank’s #GreaterMidNorthCoast Community Funding Program and with it the major prize of $2000.
Kindilan Early Childhood Centre Director, Di Miller, said the centre has long provided a nurturing and caring environment and currently caters for children from six months to six years of age.
“The Centre has been operating as a not-for-profit care and education service for many of the community's generations over the past 35 years,” Di said.
“We want to make sure learning is fun and that children can grow and develop at their own pace.
“Part of that is our "Beyond the Gate" program for the children, where they venture into the local community with their educators.
“These additional funds provided by Greater Bank are invaluable, enabling us to continue to offer service and expand the children's learning and wellbeing.”

The runners-up for May, Port Macquarie Public School and Mitchells Island Public School P&C (Taree), each received $500.
Greater Bank’s Mid North Coast Regional Sales Manager, Jennifer Smith, said it’s important for children to have a range of experiences.
“Offering different programs keeps things interesting for the children, which keeps them engaged and motivated,” Jennifer said.
“One of these extra activities might ignite a lifelong passion in these kids, so if we can help facilitate this through the Community Funding Program, then we are very pleased to do so.”
Voting in the June round of the #GreaterMidNorthCoast Community Funding Program is open from 9.00am Monday June 6 until 5.00pm Wednesday June 29 2022, with Great Lakes Vietnam Veterans Sub-Branch Inc.
