Frequently Asked Questions


Can I still apply if I live outside the zone?

The zoning requirements are decided by Bayside Council and unless there are free places available, priority will be given to children who are residing in the bayside 2km radius zone of the kindergarten.

 

What if my child does not get offered a place?

Firstly, please make sure that you have waited until final round offers have gone out (past early September). If your child has missed out on a place, their name is added to a waiting list frequently monitored by either the 3-year-old or 4-year-old enrolment officer. If a place becomes available during the year you will be contacted.

 

Which feeder schools do most children go to?

Our main feeder schools are Elsternwick Primary School and St. James Catholic Primary School.

 

Can younger siblings come to duty?

Yes, you are welcome to bring younger siblings to duty. However, these younger children are your responsibility so please keep an eye on them. Occasionally, it might be nice for the older kinder child to have your undivided attentionĀ if it is possible to leave the younger sibling with a friend or relative. We also welcome grandparents, uncles, aunties or friends to perform duty, not only the primary carers.
