Enrol in full day kindergarten or child care

Kingston has a great range of education, care and play-based child care to suit children from birth to five years of age. Long day care provides a foundation for children to learn, develop and socialise in a safe and nurturing environment and can also assist parents seeking to return to work. Many child care centres also offer other programs including funded four-year-old kindergarten.
