Kindergarten groups and sessions

Council kindergartens hold a range of group sessions run by qualified and experienced educators.

Sizes of kindergarten groups

The majority of kindergarten groups have a maximum of 22 children.

Some services have a maximum of 30 children. This is when:

  • there is significant demand
  • the playroom and playground space has been approved by the Department of Education and Training.

Groups of more than 22 children have an additional qualified educator.

2021 groups and sessions

You can choose which group you would like your child to attend. If there are no vacancies in your first preference, your child may be offered a place at one of your other choices.
