Early years services funding

Early years services grant funding has been restructured to align funding for similar purposes and to streamline performance and reporting requirements.

On 1 July 2016 we introduced new guidelines, performance measures and reporting requirements.

These changes will not impact kindergarten funding provided through the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme or Disability Support for Queensland Kindergartens.

The story so far

Under each category find tools to assist you with reporting: guidelines, Periodic Performance Reports (PPRs), case study template, data collection tools and survey guide.
