​Purpose

To assist schools and regions to ​meet legislative requirements and enhance curriculum support for kindergarten-aged children attending kindergarten programs and to meet the operational costs associated with school-based itinerant staff supporting the delivery of State Delivered Kindergarten (SDK) programs.

Duration of program

From the 2021 calendar year – ongoing

Eligibility

State schools that have itinerant Heads of Department—SDK based at their facility who travel from their base school to provide curriculum support to other (selected and approved) schools operating an SDK program for kindergarten-aged children.

Allocation of funds

Regions will provide funding to schools who host Heads of Department—SDK who service the region’s schools delivering an SDK program. Early Childhood and Education Improvement holds approved budget for 2022 SDK curriculum support and will work with regional offices to determine the number of Heads of Department—SDK required to be funded to support SDK delivery.
