Wyndham – free 4 year old Kindergarten and reduced 3 year old Kindergarten fees for 2021

Premier of Victoria Dan Andrews announced a funding package to provide free kindergarten to children participating in a 4-year-old kindergarten program in 2021.

This means that no fees will apply for 2021 4-year-old kindergarten for Wyndham services therefore you will not receive any invoices for 2021.

With regards to the 3-year-old kindergarten fees for 2021, as per the recent announcement by the Premier of Victoria Dan Andrews, children attending unfunded three-year-old programs in sessional kindergarten services will directly benefit from reduced parent fees for 2021.  This initiative will mean a reduction in kinder fees of $1,600 (pro-rata for less than five-hour groups) from parent fees.
