We are setting critical foundations for learning and wellbeing for every child through quality early childhood education and services.
We want every Queensland child to have a strong start to their education, that’s why kindy will be free for Queensland families. Kindy is 15 hours per week, 40 weeks per year.
The Regulatory Authority has resources, including an animation, to help with service approval applications focusing on building plans, indoor and outdoor space, and bathroom requirements.
Learn about Queensland's new 4-year Early Childhood Workforce Strategy. 'Our sector, our workforce, our strategy' has been co-designed by the early childhood sector with genuine input from early childhood professionals.
Given Queensland’s unpredictable and extreme weather, now is the time to prepare for cyclones and other natural disasters, including understanding the risks, reviewing emergency and business continuity plans, and packing an emergency kit.
Over 136 Queensland state schools in selected rural and remote locations offer a kindy program. Find out more and register your child with a participating school.
From 1 February 2024, updated approved learning frameworks will replace the existing frameworks for use in early childhood education and care services under the National Law. Is your service ready?
