Choose your kindergarten session

Number of sessions we provide

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

How to choose your preferred sessions

In November, we sent out letters that explain how you can choose your session preferences for the 2018 kindergarten year. Each letter will have a link to an online form. You should use this online form to let us know your session preferences.

When to submit your preferences

You can submit your preferences from 9.00 am on Monday 20 November 2017. Please submit your preferences as soon as possible. Sessions will be allocated on a first in, first placed basis.

You must submit your preferences before 5.00 pm on Monday 27 November 2017. If you choose not to submit your preferences, you will be automatically allocated to an available session.

What happens next

  • We will send confirmation letters from mid December to outline what sessions you have been allocated to.
  • We will also send out the starting timetable and information about transition to kindergarten sessions we hold.

Kindergartens with single sessions

Some kindergartens only have a single group. If your kindergarten has a single group, you will receive a letter that tells you what days and times your child will attend kindergarten:

  • Botanic Ridge Interim kindergarten
  • Chalcot Lodge kindergarten
  • Merinda park kindergarten
  • Reema kindergarten

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.

If you wish to request to change the session your child has been allocated to, please email with the following information:

  • your child's full name
  • your child's date of birth
  • the kindergarten name
  • your preferred sessions

If we are able to change your session, we will let you know.
