For Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Services

Supporting ECEC services to facilitate social inclusion for all children and their families.

The WA Inclusion Agency (WAIA) employs a team of skilled Inclusion Professionals (IP’s) who work from regional hubs to provide tailored support to individual early childhood education and care (ECEC) services.

Regional inclusion hub offices are situated across metropolitan and regional WA and each office supports a designated region of WA.

Our services include:
  • Providing site visits to observe and discuss strengths, challenges and barriers to inclusion.
  • Assisting educators to reflect on and learn about inclusive practices and attitudes, and understand and support diversity.
  • Providing practical support and strategies.
  • Assisting services to link in with community supports.
  • Collaborating to develop Strategic Inclusion Plans (SIPs) and supporting the subsequent review process.
  • Facilitating access to the Inclusion Support (IS) Portal and Inclusion Support Program (ISP) supports.
