Enrolment

Visiting Our Kindergarten

Families are welcome to visit our Kindergarten at any time throughout the year. Please give us a call or send us an email to organise a suitable time.

Families are also encouraged to visit our Kindergarten on the Banyule Kindergarten Open Day which falls on the last Saturday of February each year. All Banyule kindergartens are open from 9am-12noon.

Staff and members of our Kindergarten community are available to chat with families on this day and your children will be able to explore some Kindergarten experiences.

Enrolment

Three Year Old Kindergarten

Children attend this program in the year prior to attending their four year old funded year.

Eligibility

A child is eligible for 3 year old kindergarten, if they turn 3 years of age by the 30 April the year of attendance. The child must turn 3 before they can commence at kindergarten. As every child is different, we encourage you to carefully consider the year your child commences 3-year-old kindergarten as this may have an impact on the year they commence school. There is no second year of funded 3 year old kindergarten.

To Apply for 2022/2023

3 year old enrolments are managed by Banyule Council. Registrations must be made online at: https://banyule.vic.gov.au/kindergartens

Families may register their child from the first business day in March, the year before a child is eligible to attend. Please follow this link for more information:

Kindergarten offers are sent out in mid-July via email and the parent portal.

Please contact Banyule Council on 9490 4222 if you experience any difficulties registering.

Four Year Old Kindergarten

Eligibility

Children can be enrolled in our four year old program in the year prior to school attendance, if they turn 4 years of age by the 30 April the year of attendance.  Families of children whose fourth birthday falls in the months of January to April are encouraged to speak with staff about when they plan to send their child to kindergarten. Children normally receive one year of funded kindergarten. A second funded year may be available if children have two areas of developmental delay and it is believed that a second year of kindergarten will be of benefit to them.

To Apply

Applications for 4 year old Kindergarten in Banyule Council are also made online. Families are able to register their child from the first business day in March, the year before a child is eligible to attend. Please follow this link for more information:

https://www.banyule.vic.gov.au/Community-services/Kindergarten-services/3-and-4-yr-old-kinder-registration  

Please Note: Attendance in our three year old program does not give automatic entry to our four year old program.
