Apply now for three-year-old kinder in Winchelsea

Published on 07 June 2024


Local families looking to provide their children with two years of kindergarten can apply now for a spot at Helen M Kininmonth Kindergarten in Winchelsea in 2025.

The Surf Coast Shire Council-run kindergarten, in Hesse Street, has three-year-old and four-year-old programs.

While there has been a steady flow of applications for next year’s four-year-old program, Council’s Early Years team is eager to welcome more applications for the three-year-old program.

Councillor Heather Wellington highlighted the benefits of two years of kinder.

“The early years of education are important for a child’s development and we know that two years of quality kindergarten can help prepare a child for their start to school life,” Cr Wellington said.

“Helen M Kininmonth Kindergarten has a huge outdoor area and a recently refurbished indoor space, offering beautiful environments for children to take part in play-based learning.”

Council’s kinder programs are free, thanks to the Victorian Government.
