Beaconsfield Kindergarten is not zoned and we welcome enrolments from families from all local suburbs across the Cardinia and Casey shire councils. For more information regarding our enrolment policy, please refer to the Cardinia Shire Council's Central Enrolment Policy.
How to enrol in 4-year-old and 3-year-old kinder
All 4-year-old and 3-year-old kinder enrolments are processed through Cardinia Shire Council's online Central Registration System.
Initial options for enrolment include selecting which centre location you prefer, Woods Street or O'Neil Road.
In July of the year prior to attendance, families will be contacted by Council and given the opportunity to put in their preferences for particular days, timetables, and programs including Bush Kinder.
If you have any questions about the online system, please contact the Council at email@example.com or on 1300 787 624.
How to enrol in the Kinder Readiness Program
For more information regarding enrolling in our Kinder Readiness Program, please contact our office on 03 8768 444 or email us.
Enrolments are taken from birth until 30 June the year prior to attending kindergarten.
First round offers for four-year-old kindergarten start mid-July the year before your child's year of attendance. First round offers for three-year-old kindergarten and Kinder Readiness Program start mid-August the year before your child's year of attendance.
As positions are accepted and declined, new offers will be made via a second round. This process will continue until all children have been given the opportunity to attend a community kindergarten program. There is no guarantee that you will be offered your first preference but every effort is made to accommodate families and requests.
All of our programs will be offered free of charge in 2021 under the state government's "2021 free kinder" initiative.
2022 fees are expected to be around $370 per term all-inclusive for the 4-year-old, 3-year-old and Kinder Readiness programs. A 10% discount is available for fees paid for the full year in advance. Alternatively, fees are invoiced during the first week of each term on a 14-day account. Fee relief is available to holders of healthcare and pension cards.
These fees are used to cover the gap between government funding provided for our 4-year-old program and the costs of managing and running the centre. Beaconsfield Kindergarten makes every effort to keep our fees as low as possible, to ensure our programs are as accessible as possible.
