Three-year-old kindergarten is available for children who turn three before 30 April each year, two years before they are eligible to commence primary school.

As part of the Early Years Reform, there is commitment from the Victorian Government to deliver funded three-year-old kindergarten and progressively roll it out across the state from 2020.

From 2022 every eligible three-year-old child in Hobsons Bay will have access to a minimum of five hours of funded three-year-old kindergarten. To ensure a seamless, consistent process for families in Hobsons Bay, registrations for three-year-old kindergarten for the 2022 intake will be undertaken by the Council’s Kindergarten Central Registration Scheme.

Registrations for three-year-old kindergarten in 2022 will be accepted by Council from January 2021. Information regarding the registration process will be continually updated on the webpage.

Registrations will be accepted from the age of 1 year old and onwards.
