Welcome to the Ripponlea Kindergarten community!

Ripponlea Kindergarten operates 3-4 Year Old and 4-5 Year Old Sessional Kindergarten Programs of an exceptional standard. 

We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the Kindergarten Program and Staff and please join us for a tour!

2024 Kindergarten Places:

We currently have very limited vacancies for 2024 in the 4-5 year old programs (including bush kinder). For a tour or more information please contact the kindergarten on 9527 4343 or email enrolment@ripponleakinder.org.au

On occasion, places for the 3-4 year old program do become available throughout the year. If you would like to place your child on the waiting list, please contact the kindergarten on 9527 4343 or email enrolment@ripponleakinder.org.au

The 2024 Enrolment Process:

As we are located on the border of Port Phillip Council and Glen Eira council, we welcome enrolments from both municipalities, as well as enrolments from further afield. Everyone is welcome at Ripponlea Kindergarten! 

First-round offers are sent out via email around June of the previous year to families on the waiting list. Successful applicants will be notified of a confirmed place. Second-Round Offers are sent out in August after we receive details from Glen Eira Council.

To enrol...

  1. From 1st of May 2022, all three- and four-year-old registrations for kindergarten within the Glen Eira municipality will be managed centrally by Glen Eira Council.
  2. All children planning to attend Ripponlea Kinder in 2024 must be registered with Glen Eira council to receive an enrolment offer, even if the child is already attending the service in 2023.
  3. Online registrations are therefore open currently for three and four year old kindergarten via Glen Eira City Council.
  4. You will be asked to prioritise your first three choices for kinder places. Select Ripponlea Kinder as your first preference.
  5. Preferences are allocated based on date of receipt of registration.
  6. Reminders will be sent during May and June, to everyone who has already joined our waiting list for 2024.
  7. Please also complete an expression of interest form for our planning purposes.
  8. Ripponlea kinder enrolment officers will request session preferences from families once offers have been made.

Enrolment for children attending in 2024 is open now.

3 Year Old Kindergarten = Children must have turned 3 years old before they can commence kinder.

4 Year Old Kindergarten = Children must have turned 4 years old by 30th April in order to commence kinder.
