Early Years Consultants (Pre School Field Officers)

Experienced specialist preschool teachers

The Early Years Consultant Service is an early childhood education service funded by the Victorian State Government (DET) and Knox City Council who provide a free advisory service for families of children accessing their State Government funded preschool year, or planning to do so in the next year.

Knox City Council Early Years Consultants are experienced preschool teachers with additional specialist qualifications.

Families play a key role in their children’s development

At times, families can become unsure about their preschool child’s progress in areas such as:

  • social skills
  • emotional wellbeing
  • communication skills
  • behaviour
  • thinking or movement
  • inclusion and participation
  • preschool or school readiness

Preschools can be:

  • Knox City Council operated services
  • Independent
  • Registered within child care services

Early Years Consultants provide assistance to children, families and early childhood educators by:

  • observation of children within their early year’s environment and discussion of the observations with educators and family
  • listening to your concerns
  • supporting, advising and resourcing families and educators
  • referring, if appropriate, to specialists, educational and family support services
  • providing a confidential report in a timely manner
  • being available for visits and phone conversations throughout the preschool year
