Early years services funding

​​​​Early Years Services (EYS) grant funding has been restructured to align funding for similar purposes and to streamline performance and reporting requirements.

These changes do impact kindergarten funding provided through the Queensland kindergarten funding scheme or Kindergarten Inclusion Support Scheme (KISS).

The story so far

The third data collection will be completed in early 2018 and the data and case studies will demonstrate how Results Based Accountability can provide valuable and illustrative information about what is happening for clients and how services are providing support to children and their families.


Find out more about each category’s outcomes for children and parents, themes from the story behind the data and action plans.


Under each category find tools to assist you with reporting: guidelines, periodic performance reports (PPRs), case study template, data collection tools and survey guide.
