Specialist Services for Inclusive Practice & Enhanced Educational Outcomes for Children
 
 
 
Noah's Ark

New in 2014


Building on over 35 years of experience, knowledge and resources in childhood development focused on educational outcomes, Noah's Ark is proud to launch the Professional Educator's Resource Library (PERL).

 

Access to the library and advisory service is by subscription only.

Our Services

These services are funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments.


This program is accessible by sessional, stand alone Kindergartens operating in Queensland and provides educational resources and advice to capacity build teachers for the benefit of better educational outcomes for children.  In addition, this program provides access to specialist equipment for Kindergartens to enable inclusive practice for children with disabilities and additional needs after a Therapist has made a recommendation for the equipment.

This program loans equipment and aids to Australian Government approved Early Childhood Education and Care Services (ECEC) (Excluding in-home care) who wish to build on their capacity to assist the inclusion of a child who has demonstrated ongoing high support needs.

The Inclusion Support Agency services the Brisbane North Region (includes Caboolture, Samford, Redcliffe, Deception Bay, North Lakes, Pine Rivers, Bribie Island and surrounding suburbs) which supports the professional and inclusion support needs of Early Childhood Education and Care Services (ECEC).  This includes building the capacity of services to create an inclusive environment for children and families that support their well being and development.  The program also promotes the awareness of and responsiveness to the following priority groups:
      • children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including refugee children;
      • children with ongoing high support needs including children with a disability;
      • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
Located at East Brisbane and online, this program has a wide range of resources, toys and kits some of which are designed and adapted for children with disabilities or special needs.  These resources work on developmental milestones and are relevant for children's development.  Access to this library is via membership for families or via subscription to PERL for educators.  An advisory service is available to provide guidance on the selection and use of resources.  Membership to this library is often recommended by therapists and educators to enhance developmental outcomes in the home environment.

Other Services

MyTime: The fortnightly two hour sessions are an opportunity for participants to share ideas and information with other carers who understand the rewards and intensity of caring for a child with special needs.

Playgroup: Playgroups give children and their parents the chance to learn, play and socialise in a fun and supportive environment.  Our two hour playgroups are held at our East Brisbane site at 20 Norman Street, East Brisbane and Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school term and are suitable for children aged from birth to three years.  Our playgroups are run by experienced early education advisors.
