Do you have a child from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), refugee or Aboriginal background that needs help settling in to your preschool?
As part of the Sector Development Program, the Department of Education is providing the Bicultural Support Program to preschools to assist the inclusion of children from CALD, refugee and Aboriginal backgrounds. All services will receive 20 hours of Bicultural Support each.
What other preschools had to say about Bicultural Support:
“Activities based on culture helped child to feel settled and accepted and included.”
“The child is settled and now has no separation anxiety, he participated in all activities and is happy.”
“All children developed a sense of belonging and inclusion.”
“Child’s family-centre relationship was strengthened by our interest and support of their culture.”
“We learnt different methods to include and support different cultures and how to incorporate cultural awareness and diversity into our program.”
“Children gained a greater understanding and knowledge of our local indigenous culture and our Aboriginal children and families developed a sense of belonging and inclusion.”
