Victorian Government Funded Children’s Services (state funded Kindergarten programs)
The Department of Education and Training (the Department) contracts FKA Children’s Services (fkaCS) to provide The Victorian Kindergarten Cultural Inclusion Program.
The purpose of the program is to build the capacity of Victorian kindergartens to support the active participation of multilingual children and families in their early education.
The Department has recently broadened the way it provides support to kindergartens to ensure it responds to the unique circumstances of each service.
Cultural Inclusion Support for Supported Playgroups
For Playgroups who have received the Department of Education and Training one-off funding to include Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) families in Supported Playgroups, FKA Children’s Services (fkaCS) can assist in playgroup engagement and outcomes.
We have a 'pool' of Bilingual Workers in a range of locations across Victoria, speaking languages other than English that are common within the community.
Bilingual Workers can assist Playgroup Facilitators who do not have a shared language with the family/ies attending the service to effectively communicate and engage in the playgroup. Read more
