Our Kindergarten Central Registration for 2022 will be opening soon.

We are reviewing our Priority of Access for allocating kindergarten places for 2022.

There were three options for you to choose from in the table below.

Below is an explanation:

  • The first priority for all options includes the Department of Education and Training compulsory priority for children experiencing vulnerabilities.
  • In Option A (in the table) children with siblings who are currently in the kindergarten (or attended the kindergarten in the last four years) will be given 2nd priority after the Department of Education and Training compulsory priority
  • Next, Option B, children will be considered based on their local kindergarten.
  • And lastly Option C, children of all other Mornington Peninsula Shire residents/ratepayers who have applied will be allocated.
