Kindergarten (preschool) is one year of early education for children in the year before they start primary school. Kindergarten gives your child important opportunities to learn, make friends and develop skills through a play-based curriculum, it helps prepare your child for their transition to primary school.
Children must turn four on or before 30 April to be eligible to attend a funded kindergarten program in that year.
Children can be enrolled for kindergarten from birth. Please enrol as soon as possible as places are limited. Council strongly recommends you choose three (3) kindergartens because of high demand. We cannon always guarantee that you will get your most preferred kindergarten.
It is recommended that you visit a few kindergartens before making a choice. Please contact the kindergarten directly to make an appointment before your visit.
For some practical information for Victorian parents and carers, visit the Victorian Department of Education and Training website.
