The EMBRACE Culture in Kindy program aims to increase kindergarten participation for children from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds.
The program works with community-based organisations in 14 priority locations across Queensland to provide support to both kindergartens and local communities.
The EMBRACE program promotes cultural diversity through:
- Professional development training for educators
- Resource development and information dissemination
- Policy development to remove barriers to kindergarten participation
- Supporting strong linkages between community and the early childhood sector
The EMBRACE Culture in Kindy program is an initiative of the Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS), funded by the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE).
