Changes to 2021 Kindergarten Priority of Access / Allocation Criteria:

On 11 February, 2020, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council endorsed an additional level to the Priority of Access / Allocation Criteria for the Kindergarten Central Registration process.

Starting with 2021 Kindergarten registrations, priority will be provided to children registering for the Kindergarten closest to where they live.  This change will not impact allocation of Kindergarten places for children identified as high priority by the Department of Education and Training.
