Access and Participation

By June 7, 2020 June 16th, 2020 No Comments

Welcome to ‘week eighteen’ of our Continuous Improvement Agenda (CIA) email series for 2020. The CIA is our polite nudge in the ribs to help you embed a routine of documenting your self-assessment and quality improvement plan.

Element 6.2.2: Access and participation
Effective partnerships support children’s access, inclusion and participation in the program.

Access, inclusion and participation

Staff are aware of the processes of consultation with parents and families to discuss the specific needs of their child to access the program.

Referral processes to intervention services are concise and clear for all stakeholders.

Ensure the Service provides relevant and up-to-date information about the support and services available in your local community for families to access. Including:

  • Early Intervention services- including itinerant teachers
  • Speech Pathologists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Local Community health services
  • Aboriginal Community Health services
  • Autism Spectrum Australia


Within System7 you can utilise QA6 / Modules 18 to 24 to document your self assessment strategies for improvement. The Suggestions area also contains further information including: child protection, early childhood intervention, family support agencies, transition to school, referral procedures and delivery of services – plus more.

The Childcare Centre Desktop also provides modules to support Early Childhood Intervention Management.
