HOW TO ENROL AT MIDDLE PARK KINDER

In order to register your child on the waitlist they must be a resident of the City of Port Phillip.
Complete an MPK ENROLMENT REGISTRATION FORM.
Once completed, forward it to the kinder along with a $40 non-refundable waiting list fee.
Once this has been received, your child’s name will be placed on the waitlist and you will receive notification of this.*

*This waitlists your child and does not guarantee them a position. Once on the waitlist it is YOUR responsibility to keep your contact information current. Please advise any changes in writing.

It is our recommendation that you waitlist your child at other kindergartens in the area to avoid the disappointment of not being offered a position.

MAKING AN OFFER OF A PLACE AT MIDDLE PARK KINDERGARTEN

Offers of places will be made in accordance with the selection criteria. The offers of places will be made during the year prior to commencement at the kinder. We ordinarily commence making offers of places in June/July and then work our way through the waiting list until all positions are filled. If you receive a letter of offer for a place then return the acceptance portion of the letter to the kinder by the date set out on the letter together with a non-refundable $120 administration fee, birth certificate, immunisation record and proof of address. The kinder place will remain secure until due date of term one fees. As per our enrolment policy, priority is given to siblings, followed by residents of Middle Park and Albert Park and then Port Melbourne, South Melbourne and St Kilda West.

ORIENTATION SESSIONS

If you have accepted a position you will be notified and invited by mail to attend an orientation session in October/ November (year prior to commencement). This will be enable children to attend the kinder with their parents/ carers. This provides an opportunity for everyone to familarise themselves with the kinder, staff, Committee members and to meet other children in their group. These are informal sessions. At the orientation session you will be asked to complete an Enrolment Form. A child will not be deemed to be enrolled until the kindergarten has received a completed Enrolment Pack.
