Enrolments

Central Registration

All enrolments (3 and 4 year old kinder) are processed through Maribyrnong City Council.  The Central Registration System Application Form is now online. Families can log onto the online portal via the Maribyrnong City Council website.

From 9 February 2024, ‘No Cost Registration’ will save each family $22.50, thanks to a State Government grant to reduce barriers for families registering their children in kindergarten and long day care services.

The following documents need to be attached to the application form (both for the online version and paper based version):

  • Proof of age – either a copy of child’s birth certificate, birth notice, passport or immunisation record.
  • Proof of residence – copy of rates notice, utilities bill, driver’s licence.
  • Copy of Subsidy Card/Immigration Visa Card (if applicable).
