Since January 2019, KU Children’s Services has been delivering the Specialised Equipment and Resources for Kindergarten program (SERK) funded by the Department of Education Queensland. The SERK has supported the sector through the provision of an extensive and high-quality library of resources for the inclusion of children with additional needs in Queensland kindergarten services.
Our current SERK provider arrangement with Department of Education will cease on June 30 2021. At that time, the SERK equipment and assets will be made available for redistribution to the Central Governing Bodies of sessional kindergartens.
In preparation for this transition, as of 1 April 2021, no new requests for equipment will be processed, however, KU will continue to provide ongoing professional development throughout Term 2, 2021.
If you require further information please contact your Central Governing Body (CBG) representative.
KU Children’s Services would like to thank you for working collaboratively with them to support the inclusion of all children.
