4 Year Old Kindergarten

Enrolments for 4 Year Old Kindergarten should be made when your child turns 2 years of age through Hobsons Bay City Council.  Council have recently implemented their online parent portal, the Central Registration System (CRS).  Families are now able to register their child/ren for four year old kindergarten and manage their details and preferences online at any time.  You can access this via the following link: https://kinders.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/Public/Login.aspx  Alternatively, you should contact the Kindergarten Access Officers at Hobsons Bay City Council on 9932 1162 or email kindergarten@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au.

Children MUST turn four years of age prior to 30 April in the year they are to attend.

Please note that Council operates a Central Enrolment Scheme for 4 Year Old Kindergarten for all centres in Hobsons Bay.  This means that Council accepts applications and allocates places for all 4 Year Old Kindergartens in the municipality; our Kindergarten has no involvement or responsibility in allocating places for 4 Year Old Kindergarten.

Current 4 Year Old enrolment enquiries can be directed to Carly Conlan at carly@homeroadkindergarten.vic.edu.au.


3 Year Old Kindergarten

2022: Please note, we will not be taking applications for 3 Year Old Kindergarten in 2022 or beyond.  As part of the State Government Early Years Reform, there is commitment to deliver funded three year old kindergarten progressively rolled out across the State from 2020.  From 2022, every eligible three year old child in Hobsons Bay will have access to a minimum of 5 hours of funded three year old kindergarten.  To ensure a seamless, consistent process for families in Hobsons Bay, registrations for three year old kindergarten for the 2022 intake will be undertaken by Council’s Kindergarten Central Registration Scheme.  This applies to children born from 1 May 2018 to 30 April 2019.  Registrations for three year old kindergarten in 2022 will be accepted by Council from January 2021.  For further information, please refer to the Council’s webpage.

2021: Applications are still being accepted.  This applies to children born from 1 May 2017 to 30 April 2018.  First round offers are being made by end of June.

2020: Applications are still being accepted.  This applies to children born from 1 May 2016 to 30 April 2017.  Vacancies exist, enrol now.

Please note that 3 Year Old Kindergarten is operated privately by our centre, so the 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten processes currently operate independently.  This will change for enrolments from 2022 onwards, as Council moves to central registration for all Kindergarten programs in the municipality.

Children MUST turn three years of age prior to 30 April in the year they are to attend.
