Early Years Engagement Support (EYES)

The Early Years Engagement Support (EYES) program helps children and families from our children’s services, who may be eligible to receive early intervention or support, into the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Working with families and agencies, we provide a holistic approach to the education and care of children and deliver tailored inclusion support plans. We provide educators and families with strategies for meeting each child’s needs.
We inform and guide you, and act as the conduit for agencies, community services and families. In doing so we aim to reduce acceptance times into the NDIS and for approval of the initial NDIS plan.
We also bridge the gap between agencies, services, families and educators to create supportive learning environments that meet each child’s needs.

How we can support you

    • Provide positive behaviour guidance strategies to you and educators if your child has additional needs and challenging behaviours.
    • Help you establish collaborative relationships with community service organisations.
