School Readiness Funding menu

The menu for School Readiness Funding includes evidence-informed programs and supports (the menu of evidence) that address the three priority areas for School Readiness Funding:

  • wellbeing (social and emotional)
  • access and inclusion.

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