4 Year Old Enrolment
In addition to the enrolment process information, the four year old enrolment form requests parents to:
- list up to three preferred kindergartens
- indicate if the child has attended four year old kindergarten in the previous year (and if so, which kindergarten they attended). This is important regarding the funding for the second year of 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 your child will attend 4 year old kinder.
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.”
