The kids are all right

It's that time of year when kinder and school start and our working lives begin again after the bliss of summer holidays.

If you are new to the area and have children, you should go and check out your local childcare centres, kindergartens and schools.  There has been a population boom the past few years and getting a spot at your preferred place is not as easy as it used to be.  You may even find that there are no vacancies at the closest place to you or it's not the one you'd actually prefer your children attend.

Here's a link to information about childcare centres and kindergartens in Banyule.  Kinder enrolments (4 year old kinder) are currently being accepted for this year and 2012 so you should apply now via the Banyule Council website.  Enrolments for 4 year old kinder in 2013 are not being taken until after 1st March this year.  3 year old kinder is also changing next year (Victoria has one of the highest rates of 3 year old kinder in Australia) so do your research now.  There is a kindergarten Open Day every year in May which is a good opportunity to visit the centres closest to you all at the same time.
