When can my child start Kinder and/or school?

In Victoria, children start Kindergarten at 3 years old, which means they have two years of Kinder before starting school.

If your child was born between January and April, you can choose if they start 3-year-old Kinder the same year that they turn 3 or in the year they turn 4.

Depending on when they commence Kinder, your child will start school in the year that they turn 5 or 6.

In Victoria, children must start school no later than the year they turn six.
