My constituency question is for the Minister for Children in the other place. Minister, how is the rollout and the operation of bilingual kinders working in my electorate of Glen Waverley?

One of our commitments for the last election was to deliver bilingual kinders across Victoria. Last week 11 new bilingual kinders were announced to be rolled out at the start of next year. I am absolutely delighted to announce that one of the 11 kinders is Brentwood Preschool in Wheelers Hill in my electorate. From 2024 Brentwood Preschool will be offering Auslan, Mandarin or Japanese language programs. I am so proud of my little one, who is finishing kindergarten in the next couple of weeks, and as a result I am glad to see that the Allan Labor government is investing in the education of our youngest Victorians. We know that it is easiest for children to pick up a second language at a young age. Additionally, the program aims to maintain the connection our kids have to their backgrounds and cultures, which I know is something that will be highly valued in my culturally diverse electorate.

I look forward to the minister’s response.
