How to Enrol

Register Your Child for Kindergarten

Parents can register their child with the Brimbank City Council (BCC) when they are born by talking to a Brimbank Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Nurse.  The MCH Nurse will register your child on the system; this information will be forwarded to us after the BCC Central Enrolments team have processed your child’s application and received confirmation from you.  See the link below for the registration form.

If you are unsure of your registration status, you can register for kindergarten online (this will take approximately 15 minutes to complete).  You will need to provide the following information:

  • A scanned copy of the child’s birth certificate, passport, visa or immigration document
  • Proof of residency in Brimbank
  • Health Care Card/Pensioner Concession
  • Preferred kindergarten location
  • Additional needs or support documentation.

Please note that the Central Enrolments will contact you in the year before your child starts kindergarten.

Registration is based on criteria in the Brimbank Kindergarten Registration Policy.
