4 Year Old Enrolments

Eligibility

To be eligible to enrol in our 4 year old Pre-school program your child must turn 4 on or before 30th April in the year they are attending the four year old program. 

How to Enrol in 4 Year Old Pre-school
Bonbeach Pre-school’s 4 year old Pre-school program enrolments are managed through Kingston City Council’s Central Enrolment Scheme. To enrol in four year old Pre-school, complete and return a ‘Central Enrolment Scheme for Funded Kindergarten Application Form’ (see link below). This can be done online or in person. Children can be enrolled for four year old pre-school from 1st May in the year prior to your child attending kindergarten. Enrolment forms are also available from council offices.

 

*Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with the changes to the Central Enrolment Scheme for 4 year old Pre-school as these may affect which Pre-school your child is likely to get allocated to the year they attend 4 year old Pre-school.

How the Pre-school Allocates Places
Where more applications are received than places available then the following order is used to allocate places:

  1. Children currently enrolled in the 3 year old Pre-school program that the teachers have approved to repeat 3 year old Pre-school.

  2. A sibling currently enrolled at Bonbeach Pre-school or Primary School.

  3. Children residing in Bonbeach, within a 2km radius*.

  4. All other applications received by Friday 26th June 2020.

  5. Applications received after Friday 26th June 2020, in date of receipt order.

The above priority is also used to form the waiting list if one is required.

Letters of Offer

First round letters of offer will be sent out in July/August 2020, these letters will tell you how to accept a place in our 3 year old Pre-school program. It is important that you let the Pre-school know if your address changes or if you no longer require a place so we can offer the place to other families.
