Under the changes, the demand for kindergarten places will increase and you might not be allocated a position and will be placed on to a waiting list. A priority of access criteria will be applied through the kindergarten allocation process. 

Email kinder@wodonga.vic.gov.au if you would like assistance with the enrolment process.

Before you get started

PLEASE NOTE: From 2023, Wodonga Council no longer offers a selection of preferences. Read more here.

Three year old kindergarten – Government Funded Program 

Find out if your child is ready for 3-year-old kindergarten by viewing the online booklet, available here

  • Children must be three-years old to attend three-year-old kindergarten
  • Children will only be able to access one year of government funded three-year-old kindergarten
  • Children accessing three-year-old kindergarten will transition to four-year-old kindergarten the following year
  • Children born between January and April have a choice on which year to attend three-year-old kindergarten – either the year they turn three or the following year when they turn four.  Decisions on when to start your child will be up to individual families, and factors that might be taken into consideration include the individual child’s developmental and learning levels, family circumstances and potential school starting age

Four-year-old kindergarten - Government Funded Program

  • Children must be four years old by April 30 in the year they are attending kindergarten to be eligible.
  • Children meeting the criteria for a second year of four-year-old kindergarten (when a child shows delays in at least two key outcomes of learning and development) will be eligible to access one additional year of kindergarten prior to starting school.

Is my child eligible for a second year of funded four-year-old kindergarten?

  • A kindergarten teacher can decide if a child should receive a second year of funded four-year-old kindergarten if:
  • The child is having delays in at least two area of learning and development described in the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework, and
