The Queensland Government funds organisations throughout the state to deliver community services and programs focusing on the needs of local families with young children.
These community services and programs may include early childhood education and care, child and maternal health, and family support.
To be eligible for a Deadly Kindy Kit, children have to have a health check at a participating Aboriginal Medical Service (currently South East Queensland and Townsville) and be enrolled in kindy.
Children in selected rural and remote communities can attend kindergarten at their local state schools as part of the Remote Kindergarten.
Children enrolled in eKindy can join an eKindy pod so they learn with their peers and develop social skills before they start school.
