This resource was developed for the Office for Children and Early Childhood Development in Victoria, as part of Victoria's Plan for Improving Access and Participation in a Kindergarten Program for Children At Risk of or Experiencing Disadvantage. It contains two parts. Part A is a background paper that reviews the literature on preschool programs for marginalised and vulnerable children. It discusses changing conceptualisation of inclusion in early childhood services, best practice, engaging and retaining families, meeting additional needs within universal early childhood programs, and the conditions needed for universal attendance at preschools. For this review, disadvantage includes Indigenous or culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, disability, socio-economic disadvantage, and families known to child protection services. Part B presents an audit of the resources widely available in Victoria to support curriculum adaptations for individual children according to their particular learning preferences.
