Kindergartens: the best start to lifelong learning

Research shows that kindergarten improves children’s health and wellbeing, helps them to develop strong social skills and encourages a love of learning.

Children who go to a kindergarten program are more independent and confident and are more likely to make a smooth transition to primary school (Prep).

All Warrnambool City Council Kindergartens offer play based learning programs and incorporate the Be You, Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden, Indigenous Language and Healthy Achievement programs into their curriculum.

In 2021 Warrnambool City Council will offer Nature Kindergarten at some kindergartens, where children can experience natural outdoor play, explore the open environment and connect with nature.

All Warrnambool City Council kindergartens have achieved an exceeding rating in relation to the National Quality standards, a comprehensive set of measures which guide families in identifying quality approved education and child care services across the country.


Funded kinder for three-year-olds

From 2022 the Victorian Government will fund two years of kindergarten for all Victorian children.

This will be achieved with the addition of funded kindergarten programs for three-year-olds.

Warrnambool City Council is currently planning for the introduction of funded programs for three-year-olds at its kindergartens.

In late March 2021 Council will be asking the community about how we can best deliver a three-year-old kindergarten program that meets the community's needs.



Council has 12 kindergartens providing a preschool program for four-year-olds.
