The Deadly Kindies Program is based in Queensland at locations near participating clinics and aims to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children attending kindergarten.
The Deadly Kindies program provides a Deadly Kindies Kit to any Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander little ones who are up to date with their 715 health check and are enrolled in any Queensland Government approved kindy.
Deadly Kindies Kits are available from participating medical clinics.
