The Kindergarten Union of New South Wales was first opened in 1895 as a preschool specifically for disadvantaged children. When it was formed, there were very few early childhood education programs in Australia. In 2023, this preschool still exists and has expanded throughout Australia under the name KU, which it began using in 1991. It is still a large public preschool program aimed at inclusion for all learners, and influenced by many different educational approaches in order to fulfill the goal of educating the whole child.
