In addition to the enrolment process information, the three year old enrolment form asks parents to list up to three preferred kindergartens.
This is only an indication, every attempt will be made to meet your requirements but allocation of positions is subject to the availability of places.
The main allocation of children into sessions is done by the Kindergarten.
Enrolment information and the enrolment form is available below. Please ensure that you use the correct form i.e. use the form for the year that your child will attend 3 Year Old.
Please remember you can use your mobile phone to attach proof documentation if you do not have a scanner.
“Families of children with birth dates between 1 January and 30 April have a choice about whether their child will commence school in the year they turn five or the following year, and therefore whether they commence kindergarten in the year they turn four or the year they turn five. Families with children born between 1 January and 30 April need to make an informed choice about which year they would like their child to commence school and therefore which year their child will attend a funded kindergarten program. Families who have questions about the best time for their child to commence school, and hence kindergarten, should discuss this decision with an early childhood teacher, Maternal and Child Health Nurse, Prep teacher or other professions involved in supporting the development of their child.”

3 YEAR OLD – please note that children are eligible to apply for three year old provided they turn three by April 30 the year they attend. However no child can commence sessions until they have turned three. If you wish to accept a place and hold it until your child turns three, a holding fee may apply. An additional age criteria may also apply at some centres.
