Kindergarten is an important early step on your child’s journey through education, giving them the chance to play, learn, grow and develop. From 2014, South Australia will have the same first day of preschool for all children. This will be the first day of term one.
The same first day of kindergarten will mean that every child will have four terms of kindergarten and then four terms of reception when they go to school. It will also mean a more stable environment for children with fewer changes to groups throughout the year.
From 2014, if your child turns four before 1 May, they will start preschool on the first day of term one. If your child turns four on or after 1 May, they will start preschool on the first day of term one the following year. The minimum age for starting kindergarten will then be three years and eight months.

Kindergarten has a Parent Contribution of $190 per term which is reviewed by the Governing Council at the end of each year.
Cumberland Kindergarten is staffed by a full time Director, full time Teacher and one part time Early Childhood Worker. We also have access to additional staff through the Preschool Support Program and Bilingual Support Program.
