Kindergarten closures due to coronavirus

The Prime Minister has announced the temporary closure of community centres to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Due to this advice, all City of Casey kindergartens will be closed until further notice from 5pm Wednesday 25 March 2020.

Work placements at Casey kindergartens

Tertiary and TAFE students studying Early Childhood (or other education disciplines) can get a work placement at a Casey kindergarten. Placements run between March and November each year and are under the guidance of a mentor. Students get valuable work experience with play-based kindergarten programs, turning theory into practice. Positions are subject to availability.

    How to apply

    To apply you must:

    • be over 18
    • provide a Practicum Placement Agreement. This outlines each party’s responsibility and requirements and is provided through the student's university or TAFE
    • have a valid Working With Children Check
