Enrol your child into kindergarten today!

All Koorie children who turn 3 by 30th April are eligible for Early Start Kindergarten.

All Koorie children who turn 4 by 30th April are eligible for either the Kindergarten Fee Subsidy or Early Start Kindergarten extension. 

Research shows that all children benefit from attending kindergarten. Your child's attendance in quality early childhood education helps them in transitioning to school. It also has positive impacts throughout their entire education. Long-term studies have shown that children who attend preschool education have improved job prospects and higher wages when they enter the workforce.

An early start means more time at kindergarten, giving Koorie kids the best possible start to their education.

For more information, see the flyer below, speak to a Koorie Engagement Support Officer (KESO) from your nearest Department of Education and Training office, or visit the DET website here.

A KESO can help you find a kindergarten service or child care centre in your area, and enrol your child. They can also provide you with information about available grants.
