The Queensland Department of Education and key representatives from the early childhood sector are developing a broad-ranging Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Disability and Inclusion Plan (the plan) for the sector.
The purpose of the plan is to:
• demonstrate a commitment to inclusion across the Early Childhood and Community Engagement (ECCE) Division through leadership and direction;
• build inclusion capability to increase quality and performance of Queensland ECEC services including greater compliance with legislative implications; and
• escalate inclusion as a priority for all stakeholders in the early childhood sector.
An ECEC Disability and Inclusion Working Group has been established to develop this plan and is conducting a short survey to support the development of the plan. For more on the project and the survey go here.
