How do I apply for 3yo or 4yo Kindergarten

To register for a spot for your child at kindergarten please click on the 3 or 4yo button above. Once registered, Moreland Council will provide us (MEYM) with your details and we will start the enrolment process into one of our kindergarten programs. 2023 registered families will be contacted in November.

We will start by emailing you an offer and ask you to choose which program you prefer (where applicable) and to pay a $50 non-refundable enrolment fee (concessions apply). In 2023 the enrolment fee will not apply.

We will then email you an enrolment form for completion and ask you to provide an up to date Immunisation History Statement and any Medical Action Plans (if applicable).

Following we will provide you with details regarding orientation and a start date for your child.

Please visit our Questions and Answers and note the following further information

  • Children cannot attend more than one State Government partially funded kindergarten program at the same time.
  • The kindergarten programs are partially funded by the Department of Education and Training (DET). The DET contribution along with fees paid by families are to pay for the total program costs. Children attending an MEYM kindergarten are NOT eligible for the Child Care Benefit or Child Care Rebate.
  • Kindergarten fees are not applicable for holders of a valid concession card for the year your child attends.
  • Victorian State Government Policy states that a child is entitled to funding for ONE year of 4yo kindergarten and will only be eligible to receive a second year of funded kinder if they are assessed as having at least two areas of significant developmental delay that are not age related i.e. If the child is exhibiting behaviour/s that is/are deemed consistent for their ‘young’ age they will not fit the funding criteria. If this is the case you cannot register online and will need to inform MEYM Enrolment Officer.

    For further advice and information please email enrolments@meym.org.au

Fees

In 2023, fees do not apply. In 2022, a $50 non-refundable enrolment fee per child per enrolment is charged upon offer of a position by Moreland Early Years Management for each of our kindergartens. The kindergarten program fee will be charged per term for the year of your child’s enrolment.
Families eligible for the kindergarten fee subsidy will not be charged the enrolment fee and the term fees, and will be required to provide a copy of your valid concession card upon offer of a position by Moreland Early Years Management. If your concession card expires you must send us an updated card.

If the payment method chosen is direct debit, you will need to complete a direct debit agreement stipulating your nominated account. The fees will be charged automatically on the due date. If payment method chosen is by invoice, you will need to click on the link attached to the invoice emailed to you and proceed to complete the payment as per the due date.

Children attending an MEYM kindergarten are NOT eligible for the Child Care Benefit or Child Care Rebate.

2022 MEYM Kindergarten Timetables 

(Note: programs subject to change pending enrolment numbers)

Gowanbrae Children’s Centre 2022 Timetable

In 2022, Gowanbrae will be offering 2 groups of 5 hours of 3 year old funded Kindergarten. Families can choose to attend one of the groups of 5 hours.  Due to the funding models children can not attend two funded groups. This will be extended in 2023 so that children will be able to attend 15 hours of 3 year old kindergarten. In addition to this 4 year old kindergarten will offer 2 groups. One group will be 2 x 7.5 hours to cater for those families needing longer days and group 2 will be a 3×5 hour session to finish at 1.30pm. Extended hours will now be offered in the 4 year old program as well as the 3 year old program subject to enrolment numbers.

In preparation for the introduction of the State Funded 3 year old kindergarten programs MEYM will no longer be able to offer ChildCare Subsidy. This is due to Kindergarten programs being funded by the State and CCS is funded by the Commonwealth Government. For families requiring longer days MEYM will be offering an extended hours kindergarten program in the 3yo program and 4yo program subject to enrolment numbers.

Extended Activities Program may run on Fridays subject to enrolment numbers to 3yo and 4yo groups. Cost $590 full day.

(programs and optional extended hours kindergarten program subject to number of enrolments)

3YO Yellow Group on Thursday is a mixed age group with 4YO Blue group on Thursday in Room 1, 3YO Green Group is in Room 2
