Eligibility for Preschool

Children are entitled to access 4 terms (1 year) of government preschool in the year before they start school. We’re introducing a mid-year intake into preschool.

This means that from 2023 children who turn 4 years old:

  • before 1 May are eligible to start preschool at the beginning of the year.
  • on 1 May to 31 October can commence preschool through the mid-year intake at the start of term 3 of that year
  • after 31 October will be eligible to commence preschool at the start of the following year.

You can register your interest for your child to attend preschool at St James Park Kindergarten by using the preschool registration form. Please complete and return to kindy via email or drop off.

If your child is offered offered a place, you will receive a letter or email from us. To accept the offer and secure the place, you will need to reply within the timeframe requested.

Term 1 Enrolments

For families living within our local catchment area, enrolment offers will be made at the beginning of August. If this is your preferred preschool but you do not live in the local catchment area, you can still be offered a place, this will depend upon the places available and will follow our priority of access policy.  A second round of enrolment offers will be made at the beginning of September.
