​Wynnum State School is host to the Wynnum Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP). This program provides early intervention for children from birth to 5 years who require intensive, multidisciplinary programs to develop skills and behaviours to maximise their participation in schooling.

ECDPs play a different but complementary role to National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) supports, and to kindergartens.

ECDP’s are accessible to children with significant disability in the categories of autism spectrum disorder, hearing impairment, intellectual disability, physical impairment, speech language impairment or vision impairment.

Children attending ECDP are provided with high quality early childhood intervention programs provided by qualified specialist teachers with input from Department of Education therapists with extensive knowledge of supporting children with disability and developmental delays. An individual education plan (IEP) is created in collaboration with parents/carers to identify the teaching focus (goals) and support strategies provided for each child.

Children aged 0-3 are eligible to attend a 2 hour Playgroup Session that facilitates networking with other parents and learning the skills and strategies required to assist each child’s individual development. From 3 years of age, children are eligible for 1 full day (9.00 am – 2.30 pm) Kindergarten/Pre Prep program.

The ECDP works collaboratively with families, early childhood education centres and the child’s future school to maximise continuity of teaching and learning to make a smooth and successful transition to their local school Prep. While the Department of Education provides ECDPs, this is not considered enrolment at school.

All enquiries should be directed to the Head of Student Support, Lara Collingwood, via email lcoll113@eq.edu.au or phone: 3893 5158.
