The Kinder Tick shows we meet criteria in the funding guidelines set out by the Victorian Government - which means you can have confidence your child’s learning and development will be supported by qualified early childhood teachers and educators through a responsive, evidence-based Cultural learning program.

At Perridak Burron we endeavour to support and guide your child's journey through the vital years of early childhood learning through to a successful transition into formal schooling. Our kindergarten curriculum Is designed to support your childs learning through the Implementation of the Victorian Early Years Learning & Development Framework (VEYLDF) with the added support from the Aboriginal 8 Ways of Learning (A8WOL), delivered and facilitated by our Bachelor Qualified Early Childhood Kindergarten Teachers. Please see our 'Educational Programs' page for more Information.
There are eligibility requirements set out by the Department of Education and Training. We offer both 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs. Families with children born between January and April can choose which year to start at Three-Year-Old Kinder. These children can start in the same year they turn three, or in the year they turn four years of age. Due to staffing requirements, children can only commence in our 3-year-old room once they have turned 3.
If your child turns six in late December (between the last day of the school year and 31 December), they can attend Four-Year-Old Kindergarten in that year and attend school the following year.
Under Koorie Kids Shine Kindergarten initiative, eligible children must attend 15 hours per week for 3 & 4 year old kindergarten. Our kinder program runs between 9am – 2pm from Tuesday through to Thursday. Additional afternoon hours of care past 2pm until 5.30pm are available for a minimal afternoon long day care cost (minus Child Care Subsidy).
When your child starts at kindergarten directly relates to the age they will start at primary school. Please speak to us about the best time for your child to start at Three-Year-Old Kinder.
