Changes to registration in 2024

Introducing the Children’s Services Integrated Registration and Enrolment (CSIRE) system.

From February 2024, the process to register and update a registration will be online and self-service. The new system is known as CSIRE (we call it "siri"). For a preview, check out the walkthrough of the new portal.

All 5 Council-managed services and 6 of 8 community-managed services will be part of the new system.  These 2 services are managing their own registrations:

  • Ada Mary A’Beckett Children’s Centre in Port Melbourne
  • Neighborhood House (South Melbourne Child Care Co-operative), Albert Park

If your child is registered on the current system, but hasn’t got a place, we will be in touch with you from the end of October 2023. You will be given options on how to manage your existing registration before your data is moved into the new system.

Central registration for sessional kindergarten is planned for 2025.
