Parents and guardians: If your child turned four by 30 April 2021, they can attend 15 hours of sessional kindergarten per week for free this year.

Managed by a team of professional early years qualified educators, the kindergarten is located on Level 5 of Melbourne's first vertical school building, South Melbourne Primary School.
