In 2023, eKindy pods will deliver kindergarten experiences for between 2 and 4 children each week during school terms at approved state schools in selected communities.
Children registered for
eKindy have the opportunity to socialise with their peers at a pod. Pods complement delivery of the full eKindy distance kindergarten program in the home.
The Royal Queensland Bush Children’s Health Scheme (BUSHkids) is funded by the department to employ facilitators to deliver the pods and a supervising early childhood teacher as a state-wide program coordinator to oversee the pod program.
2023 approved pod locations will be released in late January 2023.
