The Inclusive Kindergartens Facilities Program (IKFP) funds small upgrades to buildings, playgrounds and equipment that make a big difference to how Victorian kindergartens can meet the educational and social needs of children with disabilities.
IKFP grants help kindergartens to become more inclusive.
Inclusive education is about ensuring that all children, regardless of disabilities or other differences, are able to fully participate, learn, develop and succeed in our schools and kindergartens.
Funded projects have ranged from sensory gardens and accessible ramps to modified play equipment and acoustic treatments for classrooms.
The program is split into two funding streams:
The Victorian Government has invested $33.6 million over three years to support IKFP grants and the Children's Facilities Capital Program. This is part of broader record funding of $473.2 million, over five years, announced in the 2019-20 State Budget to build, expand and modernise kindergartens across the state. The funding will deliver better early learning resources, and pave the way for the government to introduce an extra year of subsidised kindergarten for every Victorian child.
The VSBA Grants Team assess and administer the IKFP. You can contact them for further information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 03 7022 2564.
