WHAT IS KINDY UPLIFT in QUEENSLAND?

The Kindy UPLIFT pilot in Queensland enables selected kindergarten services to respond to the educational and developmental needs of kindergarten children by funding evidence-based initiatives that lift outcomes for kindy children.

If your service has been included in the KINDY UPLIFT PILOT, then we can help!

Our KINDY UPLIFT sessions are designed to embrace the QKLG and respond to the developmental needs of children aged 3-5 years by focusing on the KINDY UPLIFT priority areas:

    1. Social and emotional capability
    2. Physicality
    3. Thinking and responding
    4. Oral language and communication
    5. Access and inclusion

We have scheduled sessions running throughout the year – CLICK the button below to download our calendar. Our Kindy Uplift sessions are delivered as fast-paced Live Webinars and include multiple speakers, presentation slides, videos, expert panel discussions, opportunities for audience Q & A, certificate of attendance, and downloadable takeaways.
