Bayside City Council manage a central registration process for 20 kindergartens in the Bayside area. The central process runs between 1 May and 30 June each year and enrolment applications must be made directly to Bayside City Council.
Applications received after 30 June are placed on a Council wait list and are held until the last round of offers are made. If a place is available at the kindergarten/s of choice an offer will be made, otherwise your details will be added to a waitlist until such time that a vacancy may arise.
Council undergo three rounds of enrolment offers commencing at the end of July and ending mid September. Although Council contact families directly with an offer of enrolment, families respond directly to the kindergarten of their choice to accept or decline of the offer.
