There are currently 27 local government kindergarten cluster managers.
Local government in Victoria is well positioned to establish themselves as kindergarten cluster managers as they have a long history in the provision of kindergarten services and a primary responsibility for broader early years planning and coordination.
Local government is ideally placed to deliver cluster management and meet the Department of Education and Training's kindergarten cluster managers policy framework as it:
has demonstrated experience in meeting the state’s legal and service requirements
provides a range of supporting and interconnected services such as maternal and child health, child care and inclusion support
has robust financial, planning, policies and systems in place
is an experienced employer and planner of infrastructure.
