Kindy Uplift Program

Essential Resources is nationally recognised as a leading provider of professional teaching and learning resources aligned with the Kindy Uplift Program for the early childhood and care sector.

We have early childhood online professional development courses and resource packs aligned with the Kindy Uplift Program. The aim is to build educators’ understanding and practice, promote inclusion and improve children’s learning and development.

The online courses support children’s learning and development in three areas:

  • Oral language and communication
  • Social and emotional capability
  • Access and inclusion

We also have packs of early childhood education resources that have carefully been collated to align with the Kindy Uplift priority areas.

Each course and pack of resources builds on the capacity of educators and parents, carers and families to support children’s learning and development. They:

  • are highly suitable for implementation in Queensland kindergarten services
  • are evidence-based
  • aim to influence children’s learning and development positively
  • can be part of your Kindy Uplift Program plan.

Resource packs aligned with the Kindy Uplift Program

Essential Resources has done the hard work for you! We have combined resources relevant to each Kindy Uplift priority area into packs. In doing so, we have made it easy for educators and centres to see which resources support a specific priority area and how. This allows you to select the packs that respond to the learning and development needs of the children in your care and improve their learning outcomes.  

The objective of our packs is to foster educators’ professional learning in the priority areas outlined in the Kindy Uplift Program. Our experienced authors use evidence-based approaches to provide you with activities, ideas for learning environments, templates, and more to enhance your capabilities and inspire innovative practices.
