Preschool Field Officer Program

The Preschool Field Officer (PSFO) Program provides support to government funded kindergarten program staff to support the access and participation of children with additional needs in inclusive kindergarten programs through the provision of consultative support, resourcing and advice to kindergarten teachers. The PSFO program is a locally responsive approach to providing kindergarten services with practical advice and support on including children with additional needs into a quality kindergarten program.

For further information regarding the program, see:PSFO fact sheet (docx - 385.61kb)

The following resource provides high level guidance for organisations funded to deliver the PSFO program and for the PSFOs they employ. For more information, see:Preschool Field Officer Guide (docx - 1.3mb)

Referral forms for the PSFO service can be obtained from kindergartens.
