844. Hon DONNA FARAGHER to the Minister for Education and
I refer to the KindiLink program.

minister provide a breakdown of funding allocated to deliver the KindiLink
program in Western Australian schools for 2016–17, 2017–18,
2018–19 and 2019–20?
(2) What is the expected funding
allocation in 2020–21 and 2021–22?
(3) Are any other
pre-kindergarten programs supported by the Department of Education; and, if
yes, will the minister provide more detail on the programs offered?
