Planning for School Readiness Funding: A Reflection
The School Readiness Funding initiative is a game changer for our industry, injecting a much-needed $58.1 million to help our sector better prepare children to enter school. But from collecting data to identifying your demographics’ unique needs and priorities, there is a lot of analysis and strategic planning involved.
So where do you start?
As one of the largest cohorts of kindergartens in the first rollout, bestchance shares their lived experience of the School Readiness Funding initiative; from research, to planning, to implementation.
Hear about their triumphs and hurdles; learn what worked well for them and what did not; and gain insight into their learnings for the 2020 rollout.
Joining them on stage is special guest Elfriede Taylor from the Department of Education & Training.
