ENROLMENTS for funded Four-year- old Kindergarten will close at midnight on Thursday June 30.
Late enrolments will still be accepted but will not be eligible to receive a first round offer. Parents and carers who have not yet enrolled their children are encouraged to get in quick to meet the June deadline.
“After the enrolment period has closed, children will be allocated into Kindergarten programs,” said Shelley Fixter, Council’s Community Services Project Officer.
“Allocation will be in accordance with State Government Priority of Access guidelines and in consultation with kindergartens. We will work to ensure the process is as transparent and equitable as possible”, Ms Fixter said.
Parents and carers that submit their enrolment application prior to 30 June can expect to receive a first-round offer sometime during August. Applications received after this date will still be accepted but will not receive an offer until after the initial ‘take-up’ period has ended.
There is still time to meet the June 30 deadline. Simply visit www.southgippsland.vic.gov.au/centralenrolment and complete an application online or download a hardcopy registration form.
This year is the first year that the kindergarten enrolments in South Gippsland have been centralised and the response has been very positive. Over 209 applications were received by the start of June with more expected as the end of the month draws closer.
