Enrolment Eligibility

For your child to be eligible for three-year-old kindergarten, they must turn three by 30 April.  Children must be three-years-old before they can attend kindergarten. If your child turns three in January, February, March or April, we strongly recommend you contact us to discuss options.

For your child to be eligible to attend four-year-old kindergarten, they must turn four by 30 April.

The State Government subsidises one year of three-year-old kindergarten and one four-year-old kindergarten for every child. Approval for a third year is only granted in special cases, and can only be applied to the four-year-old kindergarten year. As such, it is important to fully consider your child’s readiness. Our kindergarten teachers are happy to discuss your child’s education and to help you make an informed decision. 

Immunisation requirements – No Jab No Play

All parents/guardians seeking to enrol their child at an early childhood service in Victoria, including kindergarten, must provide evidence that their child is:

  • fully immunised for their age OR

For further details about No Jab, No Play, see the FAQs on the Victorian government’s website.
