Supporting Aboriginal children
Resources for services which provide education and care to Aboriginal children. We developed these resources in partnership with the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC).
- review and consider the National Quality Framework (NQF) in a way that's more relevant to services which provide:
- education and care to Aboriginal children
- support to these children’s families and communities
- give ongoing guidance and reference for services implementing the NQF into daily practice
- are available to all service providers and early childhood education staff.
