PREPARE to see some major changes at Wondai Kindergarten.
The small kindergarten has just 11 children enrolled for 2013 but they are set to receive $139,000 on top of the $25,000 worth of grants they have already secured.
A Department for Education, Training and Employment spokeswoman said the Wondai Kindergarten's Renovation and Refurbishment Grant application was in the final stages of being approved.
And Wondai Kindergarten Association president Jane Iszlaub said the news was fantastic for the kindergarten.
"We would never be able to fundraise this much money to improve the kindergarten so we always have to keep our ears to the ground about grants," she said.
"And we always make sure if there are grants the Wondai Kindergarten applies.
"As an education facility we aim to have the best facilities to provide the best outcomes for our kids."
Ms Iszlaub said the money would improve the kindergarten for the benefit of the children.
"The $139,000 will be spent on upgrading facilities.
"This will include an office extension, internal painting, a bathroom upgrade, a new shed and a sensory garden," she said.
"The garden will have tactile plants with different textures and smells for the kids to enjoy and learn about, including herbs and flowers."
The kindergarten recently received a $15,000 grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
"This grant will be spent on upgrading the playground facilities, including installing a new softfall surface under the swings and resurfacing the obstacle course area with synthetic grass," she said.
"We'll also be getting a new shade sail above the swings."
The kindergarten also received $10,000 as part of the State Government's Enhancement Grant.
It will go towards two roadside billboards and advertising with local media.
The work will be staggered throughout the year to not disrupt the children's learning.
The spokeswoman said the kindergarten would need to submit some more paperwork before receiving final approval for their grant at the end of January.
