Each year Bayside City Council manage a central registration process for 15 kindergartens in the Bayside area. The central process runs between 1 May and 30 June each for children who are due to start in term 1 of the following year. During this period all families are required to register their preferred kindergarten(s) on the Bayside City Council website.
Applications received after 30 June are placed on a Council wait list and are held until the last round of offers have been made. If a place is available at the kindergarten(s) of choice after the final round of offers are complete an offer will be made directly to the family. Otherwise, details are added to a waitlist that is then provided to the kindergarten to manage until such time as a vacancy may arise.
Council undergo three rounds of enrolment offers commencing at the end of July and ending mid September. Bayside City Council contact families directly with an offer of enrolment, and upon acceptance families are then required to complete the enrolment application in the section below.
