Remote Kindergarten Pilot Program
A new option for providing kindergarten is being piloted in remote Queensland communities.
As part of the Remote Kindergarten Pilot, 38 select state schools are delivering an approved kindergarten program in a composite class with Prep and other primary school children.
The kindergarten program is being delivered for 15 hours each week during the school terms by each school’s teacher, with additional teacher aide support. Thanks to the pilot, children are enjoying learning experiences and face-to-face interactions with their teacher, as well as social interaction with other children.
The Remote Kindergarten Pilot complements the distance education program, eKindy which remains an option for isolated children to participate in kindy.
