Applications are open for the 2020 Disability and Inclusion Program for Community Preschools

The provision of funding to assist children with disability and additional learning support needs continues to be a priority in early childhood education, as the department works closely with community preschools to ensure all children can participate on the same basis as their peers.

A range of objectives have been considered in the development of the Disability and Inclusion Program and the 2020 Program Guidelines are now available, including funding for High Learning Support Needs and Minor Capital Works.

Community preschools are invited to submit applications through the Early Childhood Contract Management System (ECCMS).

A full schedule of assessment cut-off dates and payment dates for 2020 is available in the program guidelines.
