School readiness funding menu

Use this menu to help you spend your kindergarten's school readiness funding in 2019.

The menu includes evidence-informed programs and supports that address the three priority areas for school readiness funding:

  • communication (language development)
  • wellbeing (social and emotional)
  • access and inclusion.

Each item contains information about its cost, its application in a kindergarten setting and its alignment to the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF).

Find out how to use this menu and guidance for kindergarten services to spend school readiness funding.

How to be included on the menu

A final version of the menu will be available later in 2018. The menu will be updated each year.

Items on the menu need to align to the approved learning framework – the VEYLDF. Each item’s evidence base is also independently assessed as relevant.

If you have an item that is aligned to the VEYLDF, is based on evidence and will support the priority areas for school readiness funding, contact MenuOfEvidence@edumail.vic.gov.au. More information will be provided on the application process.
