MEDIA RELEASE - Countdown to 2020 kinder enrolments

12 June 2019

Looking to enrol your little one in kindergarten next year? Kindergartens across the Glenelg Shire will soon be accepting enrolments for 2020 as part of the upcoming Enrolment Week.

Enrolments for Glenelg Shire Council managed pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs will be open during the week of 24 June – 28 June, the official enrolment period.

Glenelg Shire Council children’s services manager Janine Johnstone encouraged families to start preparing their enrolment information.

“With a number of four year old and three year old programs available across our early learning centres there is something to suit families from all corners of the shire. I remind all families to mark the important Enrolment Week dates in their calendars,” she said.

“As part of our Enrolment Week we will be hosting Open Days at our centres in Heywood, Portland, Casterton and Dartmoor so families can come and visit the service in a relaxed and informal setting.

“The Open Days will take place on Monday 24 June from 1:30pm – 3:30pm, with families welcome to come along at any point during this timeslot. Casterton families are advised that the Open Day at the Kathleen Millikan Centre will take place at the alternate time of 10:30am-12:30pm.

“During the Open Day sessions parents and caregivers can see firsthand which kindergarten will best suit the individual needs of their child. Educators will also be available to discuss any queries prior to enrolment.

“Throughout Enrolment Week our friendly staff are with families every step of the way to make the enrolment process for 2020 as smooth as possible.”

Enrolment forms can be downloaded from Glenelg Shire Council Website from 24 June 2019. Alternatively, families can collect a hard copy enrolment pack from the Kathleen Millikan Centre, Portland Child and Family Complex or the Heywood Customer Service Office.
