Attending 3 Year Old Kinder at Farm Road Pre-School does NOT automatically guarantee a place in our 4 Year Old Kinder program.

The selection criteria used if there are more applications than places available are as follows:

- Children who were eligible to attend in the previous year but deferred, withdrew from the service on or before the last day of Term 1 in the previous year, or are repeating 3 Year Old Pre-School.
- Children whose immediate families reside or work in the City of Kingston.
What is the enrolment process?

- The Pre-School will acknowledge receipt of your application within 1 month;
