Bass Coast Shire Council is making kindergarten registration easier for local families this year, by introducing central registration.

Central registration provides a single point of contact for families to register for their preferred kindergarten services within Bass Coast and to help them secure a place that meets their needs.

Registrations for three-year-old and four-year-old kindergarten open on Monday, 21 June and can be completed online via Council’s website at Hard copy registration forms are also available from Council offices, Bass Coast kindergartens and Maternal and local Child Health services.

The first round of registrations closes on Sunday, 1 August and offers will be made to families in September. You can still register for kindergarten after 1 August, but these registrations will be allocated after first round offers have been made.

In 2022, three-year-old children in Bass Coast Shire will have access to five hours a week in a funded kindergarten program. Funded kindergarten refers to the government subsidy that will reduce kindergarten fees. The five hours of kindergarten will progressively scale up to reach a 15-hour-a-week program by 2029.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said, “The new central registration system will help us to plan for the anticipated increase in demand for kindergarten places in Bass Coast over coming years.”

“It will also make it easier for families to access and register for the service they need, in a convenient and time saving way.”
