Kindergarten in Victoria FROM 2022
The Victorian Government will introduce two-year kindergarten programs for children aged 3-5 years in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) centres across Victoria to be phased in over the period to 2029. From 2022, all of our Victorian centres will be providing a 3-year-old kindergarten program, in addition to the existing 4-year-old program, for all our children.
Why are two years of kindergarten important?
Introducing kindergarten programs for 3-year-olds is about giving children every possible opportunity to succeed.
