About kindergarten programs

Kindergarten is an educational program provided in a stand-alone kindergarten or integrated in a childcare/long day care or early learning centre.

To set children up for success, give them the best start by considering when your child is likely to gain the most benefit from starting school, as this will help you determine when your child's kindergarten experience should commence. Your child must be at school in the year that they turn six years of age, this is the compulsory school starting age. 

Once a child starts three-year-old kindergarten, their education journey has commenced with an expectation of moving into four-year-old kindergarten the following year and then school the year after.
