To be eligible for funded Second Year (4 Year Old) kindergarten, your child must be 4 years of age or older by 30 April 2022. A child may start four-year-old kindergarten at the commencement of the kindergarten year even if they have not yet turned four.
The Victorian State Government Policy states that a child is entitled to ONE funded year only of Second Year (4 Year Old) Kindergarten. When applying for kindergarten, parents need to carefully consider the age of their child and whether he/she will be ready for the demands of kindergarten.
Families with children born between 1 January and 30 April have a choice about whether their child will commence school in the year they turn five or the following year, and therefore whether they commence 4 year old kindergarten in the year they turn four or the year they turn five.
A second year of funded Four Year Old Kindergarten will only be considered when a child shows delays in learning and development outcome areas in the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework, and when:
- the kindergarten program is deemed to be the most appropriate learning program
- the child will achieve better outcomes at kindergarten than if they go to school.

We advise families to enrol their child into Second Year (4 Year Old) kindergarten the year prior to starting school, so the transition between both learning environments can be as smooth as possible.
