Support for approved kindergarten program providers
There are a number of services available to support you in delivering an approved kindergarten program in Queensland.
The Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme (QKFS) can help you cover the cost of implementing and delivering an approved kindergarten program. Read more about the eligibility criteria and how to apply.
You may also qualify for scholarships or grants from Queensland Government.
Guidelines and advice
The Queensland kindergarten learning guideline (QKLG) gives advice on how to deliver a learning program that meets national and state quality standards and regulations.
The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority has developed professional development modules and resources to help you implement the guidelines of the QKLG.
Approved kindergarten program providers who receive funding under QKFS can use branded promotional materials to market their service and encourage enrolments.
The 'kindy tick'
The 'kindy identifier' (known as the 'kindy tick'):
- acknowledges your status as an approved provider
- helps parents recognise approved kindergarten programs
- helps you promote your kindergarten program and encourage enrolments.
You'll receive a pack with electronic versions of the kindy tick and a style guide when you become an approved provider.
