About the Webinar

Every child can benefit from high-quality early childhood education and care (ECEC) – if only we understand how to meet their needs. How can you support the inclusion of children with disability and complex additional needs in your ECEC service? 

In this webinar, we ask: how can we build effective partnerships with the families of children with disability and complex additional needs?

Join our expert presenter for a webinar about:

  • qualities of partnerships
  • relationships: building and maintaining them
  • the child in the partnership
  • meeting a variety of needs.

This webinar is free for all staff, approved providers and governance bodies of Queensland-based ECEC services, including long day care, kindergarten, family day care and outside school hours care.
