Is your child ready to start preschool?
South Australian government preschools support your child’s learning and development to give them a great start in life. Kindy is currently for 1 year in the year prior to starting school.
Children who turn 4 before 1 May 2023 can start preschool at the beginning of next year.
If you’re uncertain about the best time for your child to attend preschool or feel your child may benefit from starting preschool later, talk to the kindy director or school principal in your catchment area about your options. Use the catchment area tool to find your local preschool.
If your child identifies as Aboriginal or if your child is or has been in care, they’re eligible for 12 hours of preschool a week, after they turn 3. They will then be eligible for 15 hours per week of preschool in the year before they start school.
