Kindergarten Registration Information

How to choose a kindergarten

As some kindergartens can be oversubscribed, you are advised to visit as many kindergartens in your area as possible and decide which best suits your child's needs.

Attending open days are a great way to get a better understanding of the kindergartens in your area.

There is a benefit in choosing a kindergarten close to you, as proximity is one of the weighted criteria.

You may choose a first and second preference kindergarten. However, nominated preferences do not guarantee a place.

Kindergarten/school readiness

In Victoria, the State Government provides funding for four-year-old children to attend kindergarten during the year before commencing school.

Kindergarten for three-year-old children is not funded by the government.

Legally, children must be five years old by 30 April of the year they are commencing school. They may commence school in the year they turn six.

If you would like more information, read Starting child care or kindergarten on the Education Victoria website.
