Kindergarten Inclusion Support
At Yooralla, we believe that doing things as early as possible is the best way to increase participation and inclusion in everyday activities for children with disability.
Our Kindergarten Inclusion Support Services (KISS) support the inclusion of children with disability, or complex medical needs, into four-year old-community kindergarten programs, funded by the Department of Education and Training (DET).
It is our belief that inclusion is an essential key to enhancing the lives of people with disability.
Our KISS team promotes an inclusive environment in kindergartens; one in which your child is valued for their attributes and qualities. This can be supported through additional assistance within the kindergarten program and specialist consultancy for educators.
KISS are regional, based on DET regions. Yooralla is the auspicing agency in the South East (Metropolitan) Region. Other organisations coordinate KISS in other regions.
Further information can be found in the guides and application forms available for download.
