What’s a Deadly Kindy?

Our kindy is different. We coordinate quality early childhood education and care with our existing ATSICHS Brisbane health and social services such as speech and occupational therapists to ensure our children are thriving, in a culturally safe environment. Deadly Kindy will also prepare your child for their transition to school.

  1. Our children
    Are connected and culturally safe: immersed in programs that value and build on languages and practices brought from their families.
  2. Connections
    To culture and community are key drivers for our program design: supported and influenced by community and elders.
  3. Needs are identified early
    All our children receive health checks upon or before enrolment and work with speech and occupational therapists weekly, affording early assessment and intervention.
  4. Our educators
    Are continually upskilled, and work alongside therapists.
  5. Innovative programs
    Are supported by ATSICHS Brisbane’s comprehensive educational, health and human allied services and resources, for our children and families.
  6. Families are crucial
    To a child’s development: our specialist teams and programs target and strengthen the capacity of our families.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS) Brisbane is an approved provider of nationally accredited early childhood programs and is growing from strength to strength. ATSICHS Brisbane’s Deadly Kindy program is an innovative early intervention service model that provides a safe, flexible and play-based environment for children to develop a lifelong love of learning, to set the foundations for reaching their full potential. The program is also committed to strengthening the capacity of our families and their ties to culture.

The Deadly Kindy approach integrates quality early learning services with existing ATSICHS Brisbane health services, including occupational and speech therapy, oral health, dental checks and links to our child and maternal, family support and mental health services.

As our enrolments grow, so do our plans to extend the benefits for our children and families.
