Our Story

Loddon Mallee Preschool Association (LMPA) 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. LMPA’s current Central Enrolment System Policy explains the priorities and timing for placement of children, and describes how LMPA will communicate this with you.

How to enrol

  1. For help filling out an enrolment form, contact Central Enrolments on 5443 1229 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m weekdays. 
  2. You MUST complete a new Kindergarten Enrolment Application each year. 
  3. The list of Kindergartens and Long Day Care Centres in the enrolment form should be used to help you with choosing which centres you would like your child to attend. 
  4. Applications for the first round of placement offers should be lodged by 15 JUNE
