If you have a question or issue
How to find the right person or resource if you have a question or issue.
Start with your child's teacher
We understand that you may have questions or concerns about your child while they are going to preschool or when they are getting ready for school. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress or readiness for school, your child’s preschool teacher is often the best place to start.
If you have concerns about the service, you can ask to speak to the preschool teacher, director or school principal.
If the issue cannot be resolved by the service, you can contact the department’s Early Childhood Education Directorate to make a complaint about a service, or the Department of Fair Trading if the complaint is about service fees or business practices.
