Pre-school Field Officers

Pre-school Field Officers support children with a range of developmental concerns and additional needs who are usually not receiving support from kindergarten inclusion support service packages.  They are funded by the Department of Education and Training (DET).

  • Pre-school field officers are highly qualified early childhood professionals specialising in early childhood education and development.

  • They support kindergartens by providing consultation, resources and advice to teachers and families.

  • Any family with a child attending a state-funded kindergarten program with additional needs can access this service.

  • A referral can be made by a parent or kindergarten teacher.
