July is kindergarten enrolment month for parents and caregivers of children looking to head to kindergarten next year.

Enrolments are open from 1 July – 31 July for Glenelg Shire Council’s 2018 pre-kindergarten and kindergarten programs and families are invited to complete the enrolment forms located via the Glenelg Shire website at www.glenelg.vic.gov.au/kindergarten.

The 2018 four year-old kindergarten programs will be offered at:
• Heywood Kindergarten

Glenelg Shire Council Director Community Services Edith Farrell said that the month-long application period would give families the opportunity to submit their preferences in readiness for commencement in 2018.

“Kindergarten is an important step for your child. Not only will it help to prepare them for school, it will also provide them vital skills that they will build on throughout their life,” she said.

“But most of all children will be able to make friends and enjoy the varied and creative activities that our kindergarten programs have to offer, such as art, stories, music and movement.

“With kindergarten programs offered throughout the shire, there is bound to be a service for your child close to home.

“I hope to see all pre-school children in the shire enrolled in kindergarten programs for 2018 so that our region’s youngest community members have the brightest future possible.”
