STIRLING PRESCHOOLERS TO LEARN A LANGUAGE IN 2017

Federal Member for Stirling Michael Keenan has called on local Stirling preschools and child care centres to sign up to the Turnbull Government’s popular early learning languages program before applications close next month.

Tens of thousands of preschoolers across the country are set to try their hand at languages this year as part of the Turnbull Government’s Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) program which is open nationally for the first time.

Mr Keenan said children could learn Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese or Spanish as part of the program in 2017.

“We want to ensure children in Stirling aren’t left behind the 30,000 young Australians we expect will take part in the ELLA program this year,” Mr Keenan said. 

“So I’d encourage our local preschools and child care centres to head to www.ella.edu.au and sign up. And if you’re a parent get in touch with your local preschool or child care service and ask them to sign up. 

“There are a range of tools in place to help these services roll out the ELLA program but they need to register by February 26 2017.”
