Kindergarten Enrolment

If your child will be four years old by 30 April 2018 and you would like them to attend kindergarten next year, sign up now to the City of Ballarat Centralised Enrolment Scheme.

We encourage families to submit their applications by 30 June, 2017. Enrolments will still be accepted after this time, please call Family and Children’s Services on 5320 5720 if you have any queries. First round offers for four-year-old kindergarten places in 2018 will be sent out in the first week of August. Applicants are encouraged to respond to their offer as detailed in the letter. Second round offers will also be sent in August, with final round offers in early September 2017.

The City of Ballarat’s Central Kindergarten Enrolment Scheme is an initiative to ensure the whole community has access to a fair, equitable and timely system for processing kindergarten enrolments. The centralised system replaces individual applications and endeavours to secure a place at the preferred centre.

Local families may submit an enrolment form with three preferences for participating kindergartens.
