Enrolment

Doris Blackburn is pleased to offer both 3 year old, and 4 year old enrolments.

3 Year Old

Best start

Three-Year-Old Kindergarten is now available across Victoria. It is being introduced in stages, meaning children can access between 5 and 15 hours per week.

From 2023, Free Kinder is available across Victoria at participating services, saving families up to $2,500 per year, per child.

To check when your child will be eligible to start Three-Year-Old Kindergarten and Four-Year-Old Kindergarten, you can use the starting age calculator.

Families with children born between January and April can choose which year to start Three-Year-Old Kindergarten. These children can start in the same year they turn three, or in the year they turn four years of age.

4 Year Old

Quality Kindergarten

In the next 10 years, Four-Year-Old Kindergarten in Victoria will change to 'Pre-Prep'. This means that every 4-year-old child can go to a play-based learning program for 30 hours per week.

Currently all four-year-old Victorian children will be eligible for 15 hours of subsidised kinder.  These children can start in the same year they turn three, or in the year they turn four years of age.

Enrol your child today.

 Doris Blackburn Preschool participates in a central registration scheme which is administered by Merri-bek Council, ensuring a process for families which is fair and equitable in allocation of places. Merri-bek Civic Centre can be found at 90 Bell Street, Coburg.

Enrolments for next year open in April and are to be made to Merri-bek Central Enrolments team.
