 Kindergarten Program Eligibility 
 and Hours of Operation 

In 2012 Johanna Street ELC offered the Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program for the first time. The program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines.

What is the Queensland Government Approved
Kindergarten Program?

The program must:

·   be offered to children in the year prior to Prep

·   operate for 15 hours per week, for 40 weeks per year

·   be delivered by a four year qualified early childhood teacher

·   be based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines

Who is eligible for the Kindergarten Program?

A child must have either turned 4 between July and December in the year prior to starting Kindergarten or be turning 4 between January and June of the year they attend Kindergarten. For e.g. a child born between 1 July 2012 & 30 June 2013 will be eligible to attend Kindergarten this year, 2017

1 July 2012 to 31 June 2013                              2017

Children must also be enrolled in the centre for at least 2 days per week to be eligible for the program.

Hours of Operation

Our program operates Monday to Friday from 8:30am - 4:30pm. The centre is open from 6:30am - 6:00pm and although it is not mandatory for children to attend for the entire day, it is strongly recommended that all Kindergarten children attend at least two days per week from 8:30am - 4:30pm to ensure they are receiving the Kindergarten Program as intended.
