Choose your kindergarten session

Number of sessions we provide

Each child is offered 15 hours of kindergarten per week, which is generally offered over 3 days.

How to choose your preferred sessions

In November of the year prior to your child attending kindergarten, you will receive a letter explaining how to nominate your preferred session based on what is offered at your child’s centre. Each letter will contain a link to an online form, which must be completed for you to be considered for your preferred session. If you do not nominate a preferred session, you will be randomly allocated a session for your child to attend.

For kindergartens that only have a single session option, these families will receive a letter advising of the days and times of your child’s session.

If you cannot submit your preferences online

If you are unable to submit your preferences online, your family or friends may be able to help. We can also help you submit your preferences online at one of our customer service centres.

If you didn't receive a session preference letter

If you didn't receive a session preference letter or you have lost your letter, please contact us for more options.
