Early Childhood Language Program: Quality Support Program
Issued By Department of Education
Request for Quotation
Language schooling



This Procurement Opportunity

The Department of Education (the department) is in the process of selecting additional early childhood services to deliver a Bilingual Kindergarten program commencing Term 1 in 2024. The Early Childhood Language Program (ECLP) provides funding for early childhood services to employ a suitably qualified language teacher to deliver part of their four-year-old state-funded kindergarten program in a language other than English. The ECLP is currently delivered in around 220 early childhood services, in 20 different languages (including five Aboriginal languages and Auslan) and reaches around 8,000 children a year at no cost to parents. There was a need to provide an ECLP Quality Support Program (QSP) to continue embedding and extending language teachers’ foundational skills.
