This event has been organised by Save Globe Wilkins action group to raise awareness for the situation of Globe Wilkins Preschool – which is currently facing closure.
Based on site at Wilkins Public School in Marrickville, a spate of high density developments in the area has left the school facing an influx of enrolments with no corresponding funding. The State Government has stated that it will not provide any infrastructure as the school has ‘available’ space – the space that the preschool has resided on for 20 years.
Globe Wilkins Preschool strives to create a fairer and more equitable playing field for everyone in the community. The Australian Refugee Council, Brighter Futures and Plumtree consistently refer families to Globe for guaranteed exceptional care and education.
Globe has the highest number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children enrolled across all Council Early Learning Centres and collaborates closely with the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group. Globe promotes a culture which values and respects Indigenous children and families and has implemented a localised Aboriginal Preschool Language program, as well as employing Indigenous educators to reinforce a sense of cultural identity and provide a strong Aboriginal role model for Indigenous children.
Globe also has the highest number of children who experience a disability enrolled across all Council Early Learning Centres and the educators strive to eliminate the barriers that families and children face through the social construct of disability.
Join us for a day out in the park to celebrate the exceptional service Globe Wilkins provides to the Inner West community and send a clear message that this preschool must not be shut down.
Proudly supported by Inner West Council.
