Kindergarten is an early learning program for children in the two years before school entry. It is designed to engage children in quality learning experiences and provide them with opportunities to further develop their cognitive, creative, social, emotional and physical skills.

The State Government provides funding for eligible children to attend three-year-old and four-year-old kindergarten programs.
