Kindergarten is an important step in your child's growth. Council manages 47 kindergartens in Casey. Our kindergartens are led by early childhood professionals who use the most up-to-date research to ensure your child gets the most out of their year at kindergarten.
Your child must be at least 4 years of age on 30 April in the year which they attend kindergarten.
You can find a kindergarten near you online, or see a full list of kindergartens we manage.
You must pay term fees for your child to attend a kindergarten. There are also a few other kindergarten fees you should be aware of. Some families may be eligible for a government subsidy to make the fees more manageable.
You can register your child for 4-year-old kindergarten any time after they are born. You can nominate up to 5 kindergartens you would like to attend.
You can keep your kindergarten registration details up to date at any time. You must update your details if you've changed address, contact details or the kindergarten you want to send your child to.
After you receive an offer for a kindergarten place, you can accept, transfer the year of attendance, decline or cancel the offer.
We hold several 1 hour information sessions for parents whose children will attend kindergarten in the next year.
Before your child can attend kindergarten, you must submit a confidential record for each child. These important documents help us understand your child's health, your family situation and what we need to do in an emergency.
Parents can make amendments to their child's confidentiality record.
A Preschool Field Officer (PSFO) can provide extra support for your child at kindergarten.
We have designed our kindergarten program to maximise your child's learning. We aim to support your child in developing social relationships, communication, respect for one another and the world around them. Parents are always welcome to get involved in the kindergarten with your child's educators.
