​​​All children benefit from attending a kindergarten program. Kindy provides children with opportunities to grow socially and emotionally, giving them a great start to early learning and a positive transition to school.

Working together, services, educators and families all play a part in ensuring the inclusion of children with disability in early childhood education and care (ECEC) services.

Inclusive environments provide many opportunities for all children to learn alongside their same age peers.

ECEC services can access resources, support and funding to assist with being inclusion ready.

Choosing an early childhood service or kindergarten program that best meets your family needs is a big decision, but the rewards and benefits for you and your child are significant. Find an early childhood service and explore the benefits of a kindergarten program.

H​elp and support

  • Access options to help you find an early childhood service.
  • Access the Autism Hub for information and assistance to support you and your child with their education.
  • Families can refer to the information on the transitions in the early years pages to support their child's early learning and development.
  • Access Birdie's Tree free online storybooks developed by Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health to support young children and families who've been through a natural disaster.

Reporting di​scrimination

If you feel your child is being discriminated against by an early childhood education and care provider or their staff, you should talk to the Director of the service involved. You may also contact the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland or phone 1300 ​130 670 for advice, including how to make a complaint under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991.
