Upgrade Wilston Grange Kindy entrance
Hi WGKP families and our Lanham park community,
Over the years we have had many families that have experienced "near-misses" with reversing cars in the Lanham park car park. We have been working with the local council, who have now agreed to build a new footpath in front of the parked cars (on the playground side).
To further improve the safety of our families entering and leaving the kindy, we are in the process of putting in for a grant to be able to build a new entrance for the kindy. This entrance would directly line up with the new council footpath, and would be a safer and more inclusionary access for our families entering and leaving the kindy. (Re-directing children to walk in front of the parked cars and not behind them).
The kindy committee and the staff members would greatly appreciate your time to register your support on this e-petition (it takes 1 minute of your time and it's free) so that we can include support on our grant application. Any words of encouragement, or feedback of how this will improve the safety for our families would be appreciated.
The new entrance would also allow us to better utilise the old entrance space, enclosing it for additional space for the kindy, which we believe would be a practical place to make a new administration office and small parents room. Our staff members work in less then 9m2 of office space (which includes the big photocopier machine). Having a staff member at the front of the building (like in other nearby kindys - Lutwyche Windsor and also Newmarket bank st) would allow staff to know whose coming and going from our kindy during the day. More safety for our kids!
Thanks for helping leave a safer legacy for our community based kindy by signing this e-petition by next Friday 21st September (before school holidays). The more names, husbands, grandparents, neighbours - the better, Thankyou!
