Allocation of places

Priority of Access

In instances where more eligible children apply for a place at a kindergarten service than there are places available, we will prioritise children based on the criteria below. 


This policy does not apply to pre-kindergarten programs. A child who attends a three-year-old preschool program will not automatically be enrolled or guaranteed a place at the same preschool in the four-year-old program.


  1. Children at risk of abuse or neglect, including children in Out-of-Home Care
  2. Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children  
  3. Asylum seeker and refugee children
  4. Children eligible for the Kindergarten Fee Subsidy
  5. Children with additional needs
  6. Children who have received funding for a second year of kindergarten
  7. Children who have completed one year of the three-year-old program
  8. All other eligible applications in the order of receipt of the registration form
  9. Children seeking extra sessions

Pre-Kinder - three year old stand-alone sessions (Church Hill, Coleraine and Dunkeld)
  1. Early Start children
  2. Children who have already completed one year of three year old
  3. All other eligible applications in the order of receipt of the registration form


Pre-Kinder - Three year old combined with four year olds in the same session

  1. After all eligible funded four year olds have been placed
  2. Early Start children
  3. All other eligible applications in the order of receipt of the registration form

Please consider children whose birthdays fall between February and April 30th as a second year of four year old funding is only available in exceptional circumstances and immaturity is not one of them.

 

Fees and funding

The Department of Education and Training (DET) provides funding for each child who is enrolled and attending a funded kindergarten program in the year before school. Income from other sources, primarily fees, is required to meet all the additional costs incurred by the service in the delivery of the children’s program. In addition, the Kindergarten Fee Subsidy enables eligible children to attend a funded kindergarten program free of charge in the year before school.  


DET also funds Early Start Kindergarten for three-year-old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, and children known to Child Protection, to access kindergarten programs as outlined in The Kindergarten Funding Guide.
