Our waitlist is currently open for enrolments from 2022 and beyond. 

To be offered a place at Tarragindi War Memorial Kindergarten your child’s
name must be on our waiting list.

Your child’s name can be added to our waiting list anytime from birth. It is
advisable to apply as early as you can as we can only take 88 children
each year in the kindergarten program and 18 in the pre-kindy program.
We recommend you add your child’s name to our waiting list before they
turn 2.

The pre-kindy (3-year-old) program is a special program we offer to children
on the kindy waiting list. There is no separate waiting list for the pre-kindy
program. To be offered a place in the pre-kindy program the child needs to
have turned 3 by 15 January in the year they are due to attend.

There is a $10 waiting list fee per child. (Please note this fee is now waived
for applications for the 2022 kindy program).

Please complete the online waiting list form and upon receipt of the $10
waiting list fee your child’s name will be added to the waiting list for their
eligible year. Payment can be made by direct deposit to our account:
