Three-Year-Old Placement Priority

Children must be aged three by 30 April in the year of attendance. Children who turn three years of age between January and April in the year that they attend the three-year-old program will not be able to attend kindergarten until their third birthday. Parents/guardians must pay Term 1 fees even if their child is ineligible to attend until their third birthday. This is to hold their child’s place in the program. Places will be offered in the following order:

1. Repeats – children currently attending Warrandyte Kindergarten and who the teacher has recommended attend an additional year in the three-year-old program. These children will not need to re-submit an enrolment application form.

2. Deferrals - children who were eligible to attend Warrandyte Kindergarten in the previous year but deferred from the service prior to the April data collection or withdrew in the previous year.

The following criteria only applies to those applications that were received by 30 April in the year that offers are sent.

3. Children whose siblings have previously attended Warrandyte Kindergarten in either the three-year-old or four-year-old group, and are currently resident in the Warrandyte, North Warrandyte & South Warrandyte district. Proof of residency is required to be submitted with the application form in order to apply this prioritisation.
4. Residents of the Warrandyte, North Warrandyte & South Warrandyte district - residents who have not had siblings previously attend Warrandyte Kindergarten. Proof of residency is required to be submitted with the application form in order to apply this prioritisation.
