Enrolment Procedure

St Mary’s participates in the Bayside Council Central enrolment system for both 3YO and 4YO enrolments.

Register via www.bayside.vic.gov.au/kindergaten-registration  from 1st of April to the 30th of April in the year before your child starts kindergarten.

Note 3YO families already enrolled at St Mary’s still need to register with Bayside council for 4YO kindergarten.
To enrol outside of these dates,  contact our Enrolments Officer or call 0451 716 324.

Before starting enrolment, please check that your child meets the age requirements:

4YO – Your child must turn 4 before 30th April

3YO –  Your child must turn 3 before 30th April *

*Your child MUST have turned 3 before they can commence in the 3yo program.

As of 2016 No Jab No Play laws require that all children attending pre-school must be immunised.  St Mary’s cannot confirm enrolment for your child unless they are:

– up to date with vaccinations for their age OR

– on a vaccine catch-up schedule OR

– have a medical condition preventing them from being fully immunised.


Once the council process is complete, we work with enrolled families to get them into their preferred session times.

If you have any questions please contact the Enrolments Officer on 0451 716 324 or enrolments@stmaryspreschool.com.au
