FAMILIES can apply now for four-year-old sessional kindergarten places starting next year.
Kingston Council’s central enrolment point covers 27 kindergartens.
“Parents can nominate their top three preferred kindergartens and we’re pleased to report that over recent years around 97 per cent of families received their first choice,” Mayor Cr Steve 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.”
To be eligible for funded four-year-old sessional kindergarten, children must turn four by 30 April in the year they start kindergarten.
“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,” Cr Staikos said.
