Children and Families
We are working with kindergarten service providers in Bass Coast Shire to establish a central kindergarten registration system to ensure children and families can easily access and secure a place in a kindergarten that best suits their needs.
A centralised kindergarten registration system allows families and carers to register their children to attend a kindergarten in the municipality. Early Years staff at Council then assesses the applications and allocates children to participating kindergarten places available in a fair and equitable manner, in line with the Department of Education and Training’s Priority of Access criteria and in discussions with participating kindergartens.
This new system for kindergarten registration will provide families and carers with one point of contact to register their child for kindergarten in Bass Coast Shire.
Registrations for kindergarten in 2022 will open on 21 June and round one offers will close on 1 August 2021. Click here for further information on registering for kindergarten.
Maternal and Child Health Services
Bass Coast Health provides Maternal Child Health services at a number of locations across the Shire.
You can also download a booklet on several Kindergarten/Child Care programs available across Bass Coast. Information in this booklet is subject to change, for the most up to date information contact each facility.
We also offer Immunsations for members of our community, children aged 2 months to 4 years, and Secondary School students.
