Victoria will be the first state or territory in Australia to introduce funded Three-Year-Old Kindergarten for all children. This means that an extra year of play-based learning will be added to Victorian children’s education. The learning is led by a teacher. Funded kindergarten means the government will help the kindergarten service with the cost of a child attending. This helps keep parents/carers fees low.
Subsidies for three-year-old kindergarten programs will work the same way as they do for four-year-old kindergarten. See how much kindergarten costs for costs and subsidies.
