3 Year Old Preschool/Kindergarten

Currently, three-year-old (3YO) kindergarten programs do not receive any State Government funding and, in Knox, are mostly operated by Incorporated Committees of Management. For all 3YO kindergarten enrolment enquiries, session times and fee information for 2019-2021, please contact these groups directly (see below).

Kindergarten expansion - 3 Year Old kindergarten from 2022

The State Government has announced significant investment in 3YO kindergarten programs across Victoria, to provide children access to two years of funded kindergarten led by a teacher before starting school.

In Knox, the State Government will subsidise at least five hours per week of 3YO kindergarten from 2022, increasing to 15 hours per week by 2029.

This will allow local families to access two years of subsidised kindergarten before starting school, supporting all children to grow and realise their full potential.

We’re continuing to plan for the model for kindergarten from 2022, including the role Council will play in delivering kindergarten services, providing infrastructure and facilities, and working in partnership with the State Government and other kindergarten providers in Knox.

As the project continues to progress, we’ll share more information on future services, including session times, cost, enrolment details and more. If you have questions regarding the Kindergarten Expansion project in Knox, please contact

Why 3YO kindergarten matters

Kindergarten forms an important part of Knox’s integrated early learning services and programs, which support children and families to live happy, healthy lives here in our city. There is strong evidence that two years of kindergarten provides an excellent foundation for children to learn and grow.

We’ve embarked on a project to plan for the future of kindergarten in Knox, so that local families can continue to access quality services to support children from birth to school-age. We’re doing this in partnership with early years service providers, kindergarten stakeholders and the community to deliver the best outcome for our city.

We will update this page as further information becomes available. Find out more about the State Government’s 3YO kindergarten expansion.
