Refer to the
QKFS Overview fact sheet to understand why the department funds kindergarten learning programs, whether in a stand-alone kindergarten service or a long day care.
Step 2: Apply to become an approved kindergarten program provider
Once registered, read the
application guide for kindergarten services (PDF, 750KB) (Guide for QGrants Kindergarten Program Provider Application for Sessional Kindergartens) before applying to become an approved kindergarten program provider via QGrants.
It is important you read the before you start section because there are a number of documents you need to have ready before you start, including the program delivery template (DOCX, 22KB).
Step 3: Register a contact officer
Other contact officers can use QGrants on behalf of an authorised officer.
The contact officer must register a QGrants login (follow Step 1: Register for QGrants and use the 'Link to an existing organisation' functionality). The authorised owner must approve the contact officer's access via QGrants. Read
