Kindergarten in South Gippsland

Kindergarten is two years of early education for children before they start primary school. It gives your child important opportunities to learn, make friends and develop skills through a play-based curriculum. It also helps prepare your child for their transition to primary school.

Registrations for three- and four-year-old kindergarten open on 1 May each year for children that will start kindergarten the following year. To register, you will need an up-to-date copy of your Immunisation History Statement.

South Gippsland Shire Council manages kindergarten registrations for children at community and not-for-profit kindergartens.

Round Two Registrations
