The Early Years Resources webpage highlights some new resources available for early childhood professionals to support children and families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

There is information about the collaborative Cultural Knowledge Story in the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

There is also information about and links to Marrung – Aboriginal Educational Plan 2016–2026, and how early childhood services and schools can access advice and assistance as they introduce Aboriginal Languages and Cultures into their teaching and learning programs. These resources are available from the Early Years webpages.
