The Victorian Government is investing nearly $5 billion over a decade to introduce universal funded Three-Year-Old Kindergarten – giving our children an extra year of learning, playing and making friends.  Children in Wyndham will benefit from a minimum of 5 hours of funded Three-Year-Old Kindergarten from 2022.  This will be progressively scaled up to 15 hours per week by 2029. 

In Wyndham, universal funded kindergarten is delivered by a range of providers through a variety of service models, including both long day care and sessional kindergarten. Council recognises that families require flexible options and a diversity of service models to meet their needs.

To support the roll-out of the reforms, the Department of Education and Training (DET) is leading the development of the Kindergarten Infrastructure and Services Plan (KISP) for each Local Government in Victoria.  The purpose of the KISP is to agree on:

  • the current supply (or capacity) and demand for funded kindergarten in Wyndham
  • forecast demand for Three and Four-Year Old Kindergarten
  • expectations about how demand growth will be accommodated over the roll-out (for example, the use of existing capacity and building new or expanded capacity, and the role of different types of provision).

The KISP will assist Wyndham City, not-for-profit providers and for-profit providers in making decisions about when and where new kindergarten programs may be required to meet community demand.  It will also be used by the state government to make decisions about infrastructure funding investment.

For more information on the KISP please go to the Department of Education and Training website.
