DfE Early Intervention Support Referral (SA only)

Early Intervention Support for Children Transitioning to Kindy or School

DfE refers to Department of Education and is a sub-set of funding through the South Australian Department of Education under the Children and Students with Disability Program Grants for non-government organisations.

Funding is administered on behalf of the Minister for Education by the Department of Education (DfE), and is part of the SA State Government education funding grants.

The Benevolent Society currently provides DfE funded services to a range of Early Learning Centres, Pre-schools and Kindergartens across metropolitan Adelaide, and in regional towns located in proximity to our offices in Port Pirie, Murray Bridge and Mount Gambier.
