Children in South Australia have the same first day of Kindergarten and school – term one. Children who will turn four prior to 1st May will be eligible to begin full-time Kindergarten in the first term of that year. Children who will turn four on or after 1st May will need to wait until the following year, term one, to begin full-time Kindergarten. Early entry may be available for children with additional learning or developmental needs and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, depending on spaces.
How to enrol at our Kindergarten
Families who are interested in their child attending our Kindergarten will first need to complete and return a Preschool enrolment registration form.
You will be notified by the director via email with an enrolment offer if there is a space available for your child – this will be either early August (first round offers for children in our catchment area) or early September (for all other children who meet our priority of access policy and where spaces are available)
Click here to find out if you live in our catchment area.
Enrolment forms will be sent out to families who accept enrolment offers. Please complete the preschool enrolment registration form at this stage.
Please call us to arrange a visit at your earliest convenience. We look forward to meeting you and your child soon!
Transitioning to our Kindergarten
We strongly believe that all children and families benefit from a supportive, tailored transition to Kindergarten. We aim to provide this by encouraging families and children to attend our playgroup, formal and informal transition visits and parent information sessions. We work in partnership with children's families to ensure that each child develops a strong sense of belonging.
We will notify families of transition visit dates when we email offers of enrolment. Please contact the director at the Kindergarten for further information (email, phone or in person)
Need Out of (pre)School Hours Care?
If you require Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) please contact the Aldgate Primary School OSHC director directly on 0411 127 481. OSHC is available for up to 8 kindergarten children per session before and after Kindergarten. As the OSHC is managed by the Aldgate Primary School, a separate enrolment form will need to be completed.
