Children enrolled in eKindy can join an eKindy pod so they learn with their peers and develop social skills before they start school.
eKindy pods deliver kindergarten experiences for between 2 and 4 children, and are held at community venues or state schools in selected rural and remote communities. Children undertake part of the eKindy program in their pod, held each week during school terms, and complete the rest of the program at home.
The department is continuing to fund the Royal Queensland Bush Children’s Health Scheme (Bushkids) in 2020 to supervise groups of eKindy children with online support from
eKindy teachers at Brisbane School of Distance Education.
The format and delivery of the pods varies from location to location. View the locations on Google map.
