The Department of Education Start Strong funding guidelines prioritise children in their year prior to school (Turn 4 before July 31 in the preschool year) and 3-year-old children from low income and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds to attend preschool 600 hours per year. Preschool follows these priority access guidelines to be able to provide an affordable preschool service. A maximum of three days is available to children in their year prior to school, with reduced days for children aged 3.

Enrolments
