All early childhood services are required to have a COVID safe management plan in place detailing how families and staff will stay COVID safe.
Most early childhood community and sessional kindergarten, long day care, family day care and outside school hours care services are open. A small number of services may need to temporarily close at their discretion or on advice from Queensland Health.
Please note: restrictions to access may apply where a local government area or state-wide lockdown is in place. Continue to check the Queensland Health website for the latest advice.
The early childhood services closures website provides information about service closures.
Families looking to re-locate their children to a new service should contact services directly to obtain the most up-to-date information regarding availability and enrolment.
Find services in your area:
All children who are enrolled in a community kindergarten can physically attend unless a local government area or state-wide lockdown is in place or the service is closed.
During a lockdown, children of essential workers or vulnerable children can attend sessional kindergartens. Sessional kindergartens in impacted areas may deliver remote learning.
Anyone who is unwell should not attend a facility.
