App to help preschool children learn a language

A successful play-based mobile tablet app will be giving more preschool children on the Central Coast the exciting opportunity to learn another language throughout the year.

Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks MP said that following the successful trial among 41 preschools last year, the Turnbull Government is significantly expanding the program this year to cater for more children. “I’m delighted to announce that Little Angels Preschool at Kariong and First Grammar Preschool at Green Point have been successful in obtaining a place in the Early Leaning Languages Australia program,” Ms Wicks said. “This means our local children will have the opportunity to experience Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, French or Arabic languages through apps which are being delivered in selected preschools across Australia.”
