  4 Year Old Enrolments

To apply for our 4 year old kinder program, you need to apply through Nillumbik Council click on the Apply for Pre School tab .

The Council operates a centralized enrolment register for the shire’s kinders. Registrations open on the first business day in March each year, two years before your child is eligible to attend 4 year old kinder.

You do not need to be a resident of Nillumbik to enrol at Yarra Warra Preschool.

Priority Access

If there are more enrolments than places available, Nillumbik has a policy in place to ensure families with a connection to Nillumbik Shire are not denied access to a kindergarten place at the expense of families with no Nillumbik connection. This Policy applies to enrolments taken through their central enrolment System.

Nillumbik defines a connection as any one of the following:
  • Residency
  • Employment and / or education
  • Study
  • Existing child care arrangements
Children who have older siblings that have attended or are attending Yarra Warra will have priority. Any families believing that special circumstances may apply to them will be considered on a case by case basis.

It is important to note that families who cannot demonstrate a Nillumbik connection are not excluded from enrolment and attendance at Yarra Warra as places will continue to be offered until all have been filled.

Please understand that Yarra Warra do not control the process for 4 year old enrolment and as offers of positions for Yarra Warra are made by date of registration we strongly urge you to complete your registration form and return it on the first business day in March, two years before your child is eligible to start kinder. Please also be aware that children transferring from another Council to Nillumbik will be treated as new registrations.

An enrolment form can be picked up from the kinder or downloaded from the
