Secure your child’s kindergarten place with Kingston’s easy-to-use central enrolment system
23 April 2018
Applications open soon for 2019 four-year-old sessional kindergarten places in Kingston’s simple, easy-to-use central enrolment system.
Kingston Council offers one central enrolment point which covers 27 local kindergartens and ensures a fair allocation process.
“Parents can nominate their top three preferred kindergartens and we’re pleased to report that over recent years around 97% of families received their first choice,” Cr Staikos said.
Applications for the 2019 first round allocation will be accepted from 1 May to 30 June, with all applications included regardless of the date they are received in this period – so there’s no need to rush.
“Places are prioritised based on a set of criteria including proximity and prior connection to the kindergarten, so to be included in the first allocation round simply submit your application by 30 June,” Cr Staikos said.
To be eligible for funded four-year-old sessional kindergarten children must turn four by 30 April in the year they start kindergarten.
Cr Staikos said kindergarten gives children valuable opportunities to learn, make friends and develop skills in the year before they start school.
“Help your child prepare for schooling and gain valuable social skills by enrolling them in four-year-old sessional kindergarten to receive vital early years learning,” he said.
