Apply for kindy
Apply when your child turns two years old
Children start Kindergarten when they are four years old by 30 June. Our Kindy positions are advertised two years ahead and families are encouraged to apply when their child is two years of age, or younger.
Children can begin Pre-Kindy when they turn three years old. Offers for Pre-Kindy are made after a child is accepted for Kindergarten.
Siblings of students already enrolled in the school are required to submit an application for enrolment.
Use the calculator to check your child’s Kindy start date.
