Early Childhood Teachers – Do you need support including a child at kindergarten?

The Preschool Field Officer (PSFO) provides consultative support, resourcing and advice to Early Childhood Teachers in government funded kindergarten programs to support the inclusion, access and meaningful participation of all children.

The PSFO can provide support to kindergartens that have included, or are planning to include, children with a delay or disability, who are not already receiving support from an Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) service.

Early Childhood Teachers can request support from the PSFO when there are concerns about any area of a child’s development, including behaviour, level of participation and school readiness.

For inclusion support relating to:

  • Developmental observations
  • Information and strategies
  • Family consultations
  • Advice on specialist supports and services
  • Resource development
  • Program planning and policy development
  • Funding applications
  • Transitions
