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.
