Victorian children can now access Three and Four Year Old Kinder programs under the Free Kinder reform.
- All children are eligible for Free Kinder in Victoria in both three- and four-year-old state funded kinder programs at participating services.
- Families do not need to provide any evidence of eligibility to receive Free Kinder.
- Free Kinder is optional for services. Although most services have elected to provide Free Kinder, some have not opted in and will continue to charge fees. Before enrolling a child, ask if the service is part of the Free Kinder initiative so you can understand the cost for families.
- To find a state funded kinder, look for the purple kinder tick or use the online Find a Kinder tool. Check with the service to see if they are offering Free Kinder in 2023.
