We need your help to improve the Inclusion Support Programme

Register to participate in the Outcomes Measurement Project
The Inclusion Support Programme is designed to increase inclusion of all children within early and middle childhood services like yours across Australia. We want to find out what you as educators think is working well and how it can be further strengthened to support you, so we are asking people working in services and Inclusion Professionals to complete a survey.
What you tell us will help us understand the best ways of supporting inclusive practice in early and middle childhood services across Australia. To thank you for your time, Macquarie University is offering a prize draw for a chance to win one of 5 vouchers for educational materials for your service. To find out more click here

KU Children’s Services and Cairns and District Child Care Development Association Inc are proud to deliver Inclusion Agency services across Queensland as part of the new Inclusion Support Programme.

Regional Inclusion Hubs across Queensland provide free tailored support to early childhood and child care services through:

  • On-site visits to observe and discuss service's strengths, challenges and barriers to inclusion
  • Supporting educators to analyse policies, programmes and practices and to reflect on changes that can be made to support inclusion
  • Providing practical advice, strategies and possible solutions to inclusion barriers
  • Facilitating the development of Strategic Inclusion Plans that identify strategies for change and growth.

Inclusion Professionals will support educators to learn more about what inclusion is, access programme supports and cultural diversity. We support all Australian Government funded services including LDC, FDC, OSHC, Vacation Care, Mobile and Budget Based Funded services.

Inclusion Support QLD has a network of Inclusion Hubs in Cairns, Townsville, Mount Isa, Mackay, Rockhampton, Maryborough, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane North, Brisbane South, Logan/Redlands, Toowoomba and Gold Coast. To access inclusion support for your service, please contact us.
