Our Kids are worth it

Since 2014, Labor has invested more than $3.8 billion to build new schools and upgrade 1.300 schools across the state. We saved TAFE, including re-opening Lilydale TAFE.

And now we will open 100 new schools over the next 8 years.

Locally, we will deliver a massive upgrade at Monbulk Primary School, upgrade and modernise the facilities at Yarra Ranges Special Development School, and we’ll finish what we started at Monbulk Secondary College and Upwey High.

While the Federal Liberal Government refuses to meet its commitments on four-year-old kindergarten, Labor is determined to make sure our kids are ready for school and ready for life.

In an Australian first, every Victorian child born under a re-elected Andrews Labor Government will start kindergarten a year earlier. We will invest almost $5 billion over the next 10 years to deliver a full 15 hours of three-year-old kinder.
