Kurnai community members and the Oak Street Kinder Committee joined Baw Baw Shire mayor Murray Cook and Member for Narracan Gary Blackwood for the reopening on Friday.
The total budget for the upgrades was $800,000, with $300,000 of that coming from the Victorian Government.
Upgrades across Baw Baw kinder facilities are expected to create 110 kinder places for four-year-olds and 40 new pre-kinder places.
In a media release Cr Cook said 66 of those four-year-old places would come from the Oak Street upgrades.
“The additional room will provide enough space for two groups of students, catering for up to 66 new places four-year old students, which will help to manage the increased demand for access to funded kindergarten places,” Cr Cook said.
