Kindergarten Inclusive Practice Survey

The Victorian Department of Education and Training has commissioned the Centre for International Research on Education (CIRES) at Victoria University, alongside research partners Deloitte Access Economics, to investigate inclusive education practice in early childhood education and care with funded kindergarten programs for children with a disability or developmental delay

The project aims to:

  • understand the knowledge, confidence and skills of early childhood educators in inclusive practice
  • understand the role of current funded programs and supports in building the capacity of inclusive practice
  • inform the development and promotion of future early childhood educator professional development and practice supports.

As part of this project, we are seeking the views of kindergarten teachers and kindergarten directors or managers of centres with funded kindergarten programs in Victoria.  We would like to understand your views on inclusive practice for children with a disability or developmental delay, the programs and supports that are currently in place, as well as associated barriers and enablers.  

If you are a teacher in a funded kindergarten program, or a director of a sessional or long day care centre with a funded kindergarten program that is located in Victoria, we invite your participation in an online survey which will take no longer than 15 minutes. 

Complete the survey

Please note this survey is strictly confidential and your participation is voluntary. Survey responses will be used in aggregate to inform our report to the Victorian Department of Education and Training. No individuals and no centres or providers will be identified.
