CCSA has been engaged by the NSW Department of Education to provide Mobile Preschool Funding Implementation Support to support Mobile Preschools transition to the new Mobile Preschool Funding Program, or to alternative funding streams including Start Strong for Community Preschools.

The Implementation Support will include Webinars, Communities of Practice and one on one tailored support via phone, email, and online meetings to individual preschools to support understanding of the new funding guidelines and how best to align your business model to maximise quality outcomes and opportunities.

All implementation support resources will be uploaded on this page as a central location for your reference.

Community of Practice

What is a Community of Practice?
A CoP web-conference is a collective learning space to connect with colleagues, share knowledge, experience and resources across the objectives of supporting mobile preschools under the new funding arrangements. CCSA’s facilitation of these sessions will provide specialised knowledge and experience in mobile preschool operation and professional practice, and how this can be organised to best effect.

Next Community of Practice
29 June – Focus topic: Future Networking Needs

Join us to connect with other mobile preschool services at our final Mobile Preschool Community of Practice. As we approach census data collection the NSW Department of Education have provided us with the most common mistakes made by Mobile Preschools when completing the DoE census. We would also like to hear your ideas for future networking opportunities.
