4 year old kindergarten is partially subsidised by the Victorian and federal governments to allow all children the opportunity to attend a kindergarten. To enrol a child in our 4 year old program, you must use the City of Whittlesea enrolment form. An information booklet and application form can be picked up from our kindergarten, or you can download the current application form below:

To be eligible for 4 year old kindergarten, your child must turn 4 by 30 April in the year of kindergarten acceptance.
Applications are accepted from the first working day in March each year, for two years before the year of kindergarten attendance.
Applications close at 5.00pm on the last business day in June of the year before your child attends kindergarten. Applications submitted after this date will be accepted and processed later in the year.
Applications are processed as they are received, and placement offers made in order of application date. You will receive confirmation in writing of your child’s kindergarten placement from the City of Whittlesea, with offers sent out in July of the year before kindergarten attendance.
