Kinder month


March is Kindergarten Readiness Month, and Brimbank council is offering face-to-face and online information sessions to support families in navigating the registration and enrolment process.

Brimbank mayor Cr Ranka Rasic said kindergarten is extremely important and needs to be made accessible to all children.

“The start of kindergarten is an exciting time for families across Brimbank as they prepare their children for this important milestone in their lives,” she said.

“We’re encouraging parents and carers to make sure they have registered their children for three and four-year-old kindergarten to give them the best possible foundation for their early learning journey in the lead up to school.

“Come along to one of our information sessions to find out more from our wonderful early childhood educators about the kindergarten opportunities available to your children.”

Registrations for three and four-year-old sessional programs are run through council and can be made online, with access to sessional kindergarten for free or an integrated session available in long day care/childcare centres at low cost.

Kindergarten programs are run in Brimbank by qualified early childhood educators, which are tailored to meet the needs of local children, and support the development of curiosity, concentration, resilience and creativity.

The upcoming sessions are at the Deer Park Library on March 4 at 9.30am, St Albans Community Centre on March 5 at 9.30am, Keilor Library on March 6 at 9.30am, Sunshine Marketplace on March 6 at 1pm, Sydenham Library on March 7 at 9.30am, Sunshine West Community Centre on March 12 at 9.30am, Sunshine Library on March 13 at 9.30am, and online on March 13 at 7pm.
