STUDENTS at Albury West Preschool will soon be playing in a new cubby house.

The Rotary Club of Albury Hume helped build the cubby, which was donated by two families.

Preschool director Jennie Kelly said the 130 preschool children were keen to play with the cubby, which just needs a coat of paint.

“I’d like to thank the two families that have donated it and the Pierce family who are going to do the painting,” she said.

“We got a larger one so we could fit more children into it and more children would have access to it.

“They’re loving it so far and they can’t wait to get into it.”

Albury Council has undertaken landscaping work at the site and installed a concrete slab.

The cubby is expected to open next month.

“We’ve got a fantastic playground,” Ms Kelly said.

“But we’ve never had a cubby so we think it will add a lot to the children’s play opportunities.

“We’re going to have an opening celebration down the track after it’s been painted.”
