KU’s Education Support Team supports KU centres with the inclusion of children with additional needs. This may include children with diagnosed disabilities, challenging behaviour or social and emotional difficulties, as well as supporting families and educators when they have concerns about a child’s development. The team of Education Support Managers have qualifications in Early Childhood Education and Teaching as well as postgraduate qualifications in Special Education or related fields. The Education Support Manager may visit the centre your child attends by direct request of the family, the centre, or as a part of general education support and may also liaise with therapists and other allied professionals.
KU provides inclusion support to community-based preschools in the Central Coast, Illawarra Shoalhaven, Murrumbidgee, Nepean Blue Mountains, Northern Sydney, Sydney, South East Sydney and Western Sydney regions, with funding from the NSW Department of Education Disability and Inclusion Program.
KU manages a range of inclusion support services to all Australian Government funded services including centre based day care, family day care and out of school hours care services under the Australian Government’s Inclusion Support Program together with our partner organisations.
