Wellington Shire Council is rolling out a new Kindergarten Central Registration Service to help streamline the process for parents and carers throughout the municipality.
Council says it will manage the new Wellington Kindergarten Central Registration Service on behalf of participating kindergartens throughout Wellington Shire.
“This new service will support all eligible children to access a kindergarten place by providing parents and carers with a simplified registration process for state-government funded kindergarten,” Council said in a statement.
“The Kindergarten Central Registration Service will make registering children for kindergarten quick and easy, ensuring the allocation of kindergarten places is always fair and transparent for all families.”
Wellington Shire Council Mayor, Ian Bye said kindergarten was an important experience for all young children.
“I am proud of this work and am thrilled to be announcing that the new Wellington Kindergarten Central Registration Service is now available for families to record their interest in kindergarten for 2024 and beyond,” he said.
“We have been hearing from the community for quite some time how cumbersome the previous process was, and I am confident that this new service will be welcomed by local families and ease the uncertainty that came with kindergarten registrations in previous years.
“We are always listening to feedback and developing new processes that make life easier for our community. The Wellington Kindergarten Central Registration Service is key to ensuring that families have access to an equitable, transparent, and fair allocation of kindergarten places starting in 2024.”
