Three-Year-Old Kindergarten

Funded Three-year-old Kindergarten is being introduced across Victoria as a new initiative to support young children to get the best start to their education.

Colac Otway Shire will be in the second round of roll out for this program in 2021 where five hours per week of subsidised kindergarten will be available.

Research shows that quality play-based learning is a powerful way to support children’s learning and development.

The benefits last into the school years and beyond.

Evidence also shows that two years are better than one when it comes to early learning.

Taking part in a quality kindergarten program at an earlier age leads to positive effects on child development. It has even greater benefits for children who need extra support or are in vulnerable circumstances.

Get in contact with your local kindergarten today and make some inquiries about their 3-year-old program.
