Inclusion Support Programme (ISP)

The Inclusion Support Programme will assist early childhood and child care (ECCC) services to include children with additional needs by providing tailored inclusion advice and support from inclusion specialists, as well as funding to suppport more challenging inclusion barriers.

The Inclusion Support Programme is a key component of establishing the Child Care Safety Net that the Australian Government is investing in as part of the Jobs for Families Child Care package they have committed to over four years (from 2016-17).

This program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training. For an overview of the program, please visit the Australian Government Department of Education and Training's website.
