3 year old preschool

Children are actively involved in a high quality early childhood program relating to their individual needs and interests.

Children learn about themselves and their environment through a play based program.
Positive attitudes to life are developed through acquiring appropriate social and communication skills.

How to apply:

Applications for 3 year old kindergarten are now managed by Kingston Council's Central Registration Scheme.

Applications are accepted from May 1 the year prior to attendance.

Read full enrolment details, apply online or request a printable application form on Kingston's website.


Your child must turn 3 years old prior to April 30 in the year of attendance to be eligible for 3 year old kindergarten.

If your child turns 3 years old between the commencement of Term 1 and April 30 they will only be able to attend each session with a parent/guardian or responsible adult present for the full duration of sessions until they turn 3 years old.

If your child turns 3 after April 30, you may still apply, however you will be placed on a waiting list. You will be contacted if a position becomes available once your child has turned 3.


3 year old kindergarten in 2021 at Mordialloc Preschool is free due to Victorian Government funding.
