Eligibility

Children are eligible for the 4 year old program if they turn 4 before 30th April in the year of attendance. Children are eligible for the 3 year old program if they turn 3 before the 30th April in the year of attendance. For the 3 year old program, please note that children can only attend once they have turned 3 years of age, but will need to pay fees for the full kinder year.

It is essential that families carefully consider when is the right time for your child to commence kindergarten as children in Victoria are only provided with one year of funded four-year-old kindergarten by the government.

In order for a second year of kindergarten to be approved, a declaration form needs to be lodged to the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The kindergarten teacher is required to submit this form, identifying at least two areas of developmental delay, the benefits of a second year and the strategies that will be implemented for a successful second year of four-year-old kinder. Maturity is not a developmental delay.
