Inclusion Support

The Australian Government funded Inclusion Support Program assists child care services with a range of practical supports, including advice, planning and resources, so that they are better able to provide all children with the opportunities to participate in activities that encourage learning and development within relationships with peers and adults and in a manner that reflects the interests and strengths of all children inclusive of physical, cultural and linguistic diversity.
