Enrolment Applications

Loddon Mallee Preschool Association operates a kindergarten Central Enrolment System for the communities of Bendigo and Swan Hill.

LMPA acts as a custodian of the system which is established to meet the needs of the community and to comply with Government guidelines.

The community is involved in both monitoring the system and setting the priorities for enrolment.
View the current Central Enrolment System Policy. The policy explains the priorities and timing for placement of children, and describes how LMPA will communicate this with you.

Campaspe enrolments are completed through Campaspe Shire, you can contact them on 1300 666 535 or email kinder@campaspe.vic.gov.au.            

 

Important Immunisation Information

Under ‘No Jab, No Play’ what documentation is required as evidence of up-to-date vaccination?


Previously existing legislation already required that immunisation status information be provided on enrolment, however the immunisation status of the child was not considered.

Now the 'No Jab, No Play' law is in effect, to finalise enrolment for a child in long day care, kindergarten, family day care or occasional care, parents/carers have to provide the service with an immunisation status certificate that shows their child:

  • is up to date with vaccinations for their age OR

  • is on a vaccine catch-up schedule OR

  • has a medical condition preventing them from being fully vaccinated.

An immunisation status certificate is a statement showing the vaccines a child has received. The most common type of immunisation status certificate is an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR).

Parents/carers can get a copy of their child’s Immunisation History Statement:
