Is my child ready - when do we enrol?
Please check that your child meets the age requirements, as your child must have turned three before they can start kindergarten.
- 4YO – Your child must turn four before 30th April
- 3YO – Your child must turn three before 30th April
No Jab No Play laws require that all children attending pre-school must be immunised. Children must have an up to date immunisation status and an immunisation certificate from Medicare will be required and will need to be uploaded at the time of completing your enrolment form.
If you are successful in securing a place at St Peters you will receive an offer by email and/or SMS, which you will have seven days to accept or decline via the Bayside Kindergarten portal.
Can my child repeat 3YO or 4YO kinder?
The Department of Education (DET) has stated a child can only have two years of funded kindergarten. Since 3YO kinder is funded from 2022, this means your child may only attend two years of kindergarten in total—3YO and 4YO-- before he or she will begin school.
This means that once your child starts 3YO kinder, he or she must move to 4YO kinder the following year, without exception.
We often have families requesting to pay the full fees for an extra year of 3YO kinder. Unfortunately, this is not an option, as the place will be required for another child who is attending as a funded placement.
