Gate Pa Kindergarten to close

16 May 2017

MEDIA RELEASE For Immediate Release

GATE PA KINDERGARTEN TO CLOSE

The Board of Inspired Kindergartens regrets to advise that Gate Pa Kindergarten will close at the end of Term 2 (7 July 2017) following a period of consultation with families and staff. Families were advised of the decision this afternoon.

Following the consultation period with families, a few expressions of interest were received but unfortunately not sufficient to address the funding shortfall.

While the kindergarten serves the communities specific needs, these are not recognised by the bulk funding system. The system recognises numbers not need. Transience and the housing crisis have affected the number of children and families who could enrol. Every effort is being made to relocate children to other kindergartens operated by Inspired.

The Board wishes to acknowledge the kindergartens very dedicated and highly competent staff who have worked tirelessly and beyond the call of duty to address the declining roll.

The Board also wishes to thank the core group of parents who have supported the kindergarten over a long period of time.
