MEDIA RELEASE - Second call for kindergarten enrolments

20 September 2018

Second round expressions of interest are now open for families looking to secure their child’s place for Glenelg Shire Council’s 2019 kindergarten programs.

Vacancies are currently available for all programs at Dartmoor Children’s Centre, Heywood Kindergarten and Kathleen Millikan Centre, and for pre-kindergarten at Kalbarri Kindergarten.

Acting children’s services manager Melanie Bennett said the first round enrolments had now been implemented with 144 positions filled across the shire

“I strongly encourage families to enrol their child as part of the official enrolment process to ensure they secure a place in our popular early learning programs for 2019,” she said.

“Due to high demand during the first round of enrolments in July, many of our programs are already at full capacity with waiting lists and final vacancies are expected to fill quickly.

“Research shows that children who complete an early learning program are provided with the best possible start to their education. Our shire kindergarten programs are world class, led by a talented team of staff who are passionate about early years education and care.

“Kindergarten lays the important foundations for later learning and I urge people to ensure they have a position secured.”

Families are invited to download and complete the enrolment forms located via the Glenelg Shire website at or collect a hard copy enrolment pack from Kathleen Millikan Centre, Portland Child and Family Complex or Heywood Customer Service Centre.
