Free professional development for educators
Early Years Connect was developed to provide information, advice and connections to help early childhood education and care educators in Queensland to support children with complex additional needs. When we work together—educators, children, families and other professionals—we can provide children with the best start in life. It was funded and supported by the Queensland Government and developed in collaboration with Early Childhood Australia, the Crèche and Kindergarten Association and Autism Queensland.
The Early Years Connect website online resources include:
Early Years Connect modules - flexible online courses on a range of topics, including inclusion, governance, disability support, and transdisciplinary practice. These modules contain text, video, activities and assessments to help you learn more about inclusion. What’s more, the modules are free and accessible, and may be used to attain units of competency and accreditation.
