3 Year Old Kindergarten

From 2023, Bethany Kindergarten Services is offering 10 to 15 hours per week of funded three year old kindergarten.

Our kindergarten programs are designed to meet the needs of local families. All kindergarten programs work with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. This makes sure the programs are right for children’s ages.

Research shows that play-based learning is a powerful way to support children’s development. These benefits last into the school years and beyond. The evidence also shows that two years are better than one when it comes to early learning.

A quality kindergarten program will have more of an impact for children who start at age three rather than four.
The benefits are even greater for children who are in vulnerable circumstances.
