Inclusion Support

We recognise that everyone has their own culture, beliefs, values and strengths contributing to our rich and diverse community. We embrace and advocate for the rights of all children to access and actively participate in our programs and have a sense of truly belonging.  

Inclusion in KU services and programs

KU believes that all families should be able to access affordable, high quality education and care services for their children, and has a strong commitment to the inclusion of all children in our programs. We endeavour to provide programs and services which include and support all children, in particular KU embraces and supports vulnerable families and those with children with additional needs, in accessing and participating in quality early childhood education and care.

For more information on how KU can support your child please contact your local KU centre or program.
