2019 Kindergarten Enrolments Now Open

Gannawarra Shire Council is now taking Kindergarten Enrolments for 2019.

Four year old kindergarten and three year old programs are being offered at all Gannawarra kindergartens in 2019 and families will be able to access four year old and three year old programs in Cohuna, Kerang, Koondrook, and Leitchville.

Children need to be aged three or four, on or before 30 April 2019 to be eligible to attend 2019 kindergarten programs.

The first round kindergarten enrolments close on October 5, 2018 and families are now able to obtain a 2019 Kindergarten enrolment pack.

While Council will continue to accept enrolments after the closing date, families who return fully completed forms by the closing date are more likely to get the sessions days and times that they wish their children to attend.

Enrolment packs are available by contacting the Gannawarra Children’s Centre on 03 5452 1357.

Financial Assistance

What is the Child Care Subsidy (CCS)?

From 2 July 2018, there will be a new child care package. The package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the old child care benefit and rebate. It will be paid directly to services, and will make child care more affordable for most families.

How does it work?

Three things will determine a family level of CCS:

1. Combined Family Income

2. Activity Level of Parents

3. Type of Child Care Service
