Register now for kindergarten in 2025

Published on 07 June 2024


Registrations for three- and four-year-old kindergarten in 2025 are now open.

Families with child/children aged three or four years old in 2024 can now register for kindergarten in 2025 through the Central Goldfields Shire Centralised Kindergarten Registration Program.

Kindergarten gives your child important opportunities to learn, make friends and develop skills through play-based curriculum, and helps prepare your child for their transition to primary school.  

All seven kindergartens in the Central Goldfields Shire are participating in in the Centralised Kindergarten Registration Program. Families can apply using one form to choose from the following kindergartens:

  • A.G. Leech Kindergarten
  • Back Creek Kinder (Talbot)
  • Californian Gully Kindergarten
  • Dunolly Kindergarten
  • Goldfields Family Centre
  • Roseberry House Early Learning Centre
  • T.L. Stone Memorial Kindergarten

Central Goldfields Shire Manager Children and Families Carolyn Bartholomeuszsaid the Centralised Kindergarten Registration Program makes it simple and convenient for families to register their children into local kindergartens.

“Kinder education provides huge benefits for children’s health and wellbeing, social skills and confidence giving them a great foundation for the future.

“The Central Registration process continues to be refined every year to manage kindergarten placements and ensure fair and transparent process for families and centres.”

All seven kindergartens in the Central Goldfields Shire want to see the best for all our children. If parents and carers haven’t visited kindergarten open days over the past month, they are encouraged to contact the kindergartens directly to arrange a time.
