A year too early to start kindergarten
Realised your child has been registered a year too early for kindergarten? To change your child’s year of entry contact the Banyule Kindergarten Support Officer on 9490 4222.
Update kindergarten preferences
You can change kindergarten preferences after you sign in to our kindergarten portal anytime up until 30 June the year before attending kindergarten.
Changing your 1st preference kindergarten will result in your original registration date changing to reflect this new date. However, if you only make a change to your 2nd or 3rd preference kindergarten, then your original registration date will be maintained.
To make changes after 30 June, call our Kindergarten Support Officer on 9490 4222. Changes made to your 1st preference kindergarten after 30 June are treated the same as new registrations, with the date you make the change considered your registration date.
All children must be immunised according to their age to attend kindergarten. You must provide proof of your child's Immunisation history to the kindergarten prior to attendance. Go to Better Health Channel: No Jab No Play for more information.
