Kindergarten in remote communities

Children in selected rural and remote communities can attend kindergarten at their local state schools as part of the Remote Kindergarten program.

The selected state schools offer the kindergarten program as part of a composite class delivered by their existing classroom teacher with support from a teacher aide.
