Parents and students gathered at the C&K Nanango Kindergarten in Gipps Street today to mark the official opening of an $82,000 refurbishment to the premises.
Former president Maxine Whitbread said the renovations had been proudly funded and supported by the Queensland and Commonwealth governments.
They included a new verandah area and pathway, as well as a complete re-stumping of the building.
“The children couldn’t jump around inside before as it was too wobbly,” she said. “They can jump around as much as they like now!”
Security screens have also been installed.
Project manager Renee Diprose said the construction work began in about June last year and only finished last week; the re-stumping was done during the school holidays when there were no children around.
The C&K Nanango Kindergarten has 23 children.
Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington officially cut the ribbon this afternoon to declare the renovations open and thanked the volunteers – the mums and dads – who had made the project happen.
