Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives

Cultural competence support and guidance program, Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Perspectives in Early Childhood (EATSIPEC), began in early 2013 in targeted regional and urban areas of Queensland.

Through EATSIPEC, approved kindergarten program providers are supported to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and children and deliver inclusive early childhood education programs.

Providers learn practical strategies to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in all aspects of service delivery through:

EATSIPEC is presented through a series of workshops in targeted locations.

The benefits of participating in the workshops include:

EATSIPEC is adapted for the early childhood sector from the successful Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Perspectives in Schools (EATSIPS) program and funded under the National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education.

It contributes to the Queensland Government's objective of delivering universal access to kindergarten by supporting an increase in the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children participating in kindergarten programs.

For more information or to express interest in becoming involved in the project, email the Project Manager at EATSIPEC@dete.qld.gov.au or phone 0418 710 274, or contact your regional project officer.
