Victoria School Readiness Funding

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

Our early childhood online professional development courses align with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF). We offer three courses approved and included on the Victoria School Readiness Funding Menu (SRF).

These courses support children’s learning and development in the three School Readiness Funding priority areas:

  • Communication (language development)
  • Wellbeing (social and emotional)
  • Access and inclusion

Each course 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 Victorian early childhood services
  • are evidence-based
  • aim to influence children’s learning and development positively
  • can be part of your SRF plan for 2024.

The online modules provide a wealth of info in a clear presentation that is easy to watch and be responsive to. They will fit perfectly into our hoped goals for staff under the SRF for this year.
