NOISY Neangar Preschool will be less so thanks to a state government grant.

The California Gully kinder is one of several in Bendigo to score valuable funding to upgrade technology.

The money at Neangar will be put toward acoustic material to drown out noise in the echo-filled main building.

It will make story time much easier for staff, who say it will also create a better learning environment for students.
