NY08011 - Kids Grow School Projects

The Nursery Industry has developed the KidsGrow School project over the past 5 years to a stage where it requires external funding to expand the program to a wider range of schools. The schools that have been involved with the program over the 2008-2009 periods have shown that the interactive experiential learning process is successful but requires in field mentoring support to assist the teachers with delivery of the program. A key element of the program was a requirement that external funding be secured to enable the program to expand in the future. Key aspects in the development of a sponsorship proposal were delayed due to delays in getting final reports from the participating schools.
