Three-year-old kindergarten programs are not subsidised by the Victorian Government, so fees are generally higher than the 4-year-old kindergarten program.

If your child already attends a 3-year-old kindergarten program, they are not automatically allocated a place for 4-year-old kindergarten. To secure a position for 4 year old kindergarten, you will need to enrol your child through the Whittlesea Council to attend Jacaranda Preschool.



From 2022, as part of the State Government's Kindergarten Reform, every Victorian three-year-old child will be able to access a minimum of five hours per week of funded three-year-old kindergarten, progressively scaling up to 15 hours per week by 2029.

If you would like to enrol your child for 3 year kinder in 2022, you will need to apply through the City of Whittlesea. Enrolments wil be open on the 1st Feburary 2021.  Please click here for more information regarding 3 year old kinder enrolment process for 2022.
