3 and 4-year-old sessions at Council-run kindergartens in Knox will be free from 2023! This is in response to the state government’s announcement of free kindergarten for all families from next year.
Knox City Council runs 30 kindergartens across the municipality and offers a two-year program for children. This includes:
- 5 hours a week for 3-year-olds
- 15 hours a week for 4-year-olds
Families can also access kindergarten through independently run services and long daycares.
The kindergarten years are important for every child. It is strongly recommended that families send their children for two years of early learning before they start school.
Kindergarten helps children develop their creative thinking, social and emotional skills, and early literacy and language skills.
Registrations are currently open for kindergarten in 2023. Learn more
