Victorian State Government Policy states that a child is entitled to funding for ONE year of a 4 year old kindergarten experience only.  When applying for kindergarten, parents need to carefully consider the age of their child and whether they will be ready for the demands of kindergarten.

Under the current funding, deferring children, after discussion between parent and educator, must be withdrawn from the program before the Government Data Collection counts the child as attending for the year- at the end of the first term. This allows access to a funded kindergarten position the following year.

Please speak to our Educators for further information.
