Parents who need to enrol their children in kindergartens across Monash better hop to it as the cut-off date is fast approaching.
The deadline for Monash kinder enrolments is June 30, 2015 for children who are turning three or four before April 30, 2016.
Monash Council runs a Central Enrolment Register for 32 kindergartens in the municipality, and is required to give preference to children of Monash residents and ratepayers when allocating placements.
How do you enrol your child in kindergarten?
Parents need to apply for a kindergarten placement by completing an application for enrolment form, available on the Monash Council website.
All application and alteration forms incur an administration fee of $12 and can be lodged via email (credit card), in person (cash/cheque/credit) or by mail (cheque).
Children who are turning three or four before April 30, 2016 are eligible to attend kindergarten in 2016.
Priority placement may be granted to children for reasons such as having additional or special needs or for those who are repeating the year.
Parents are advised to check with the kindergarten to clarify their individual policies regarding priority placement.
