Join us at the Maroondah Kinder Expo!

Do you have a young child and want to know when you should enrol them for 3 and 4 year old kinder? Join us at the Maroondah Kinder Expo on Thursday 2 March, 6pm to 8pm at Karralyka, Ringwood East, to find out more.

The expo shines a light on the preschool years - a time of significant growth and development - and will be held at the start of the kinder enrolment period for 2024. Enrolments open on 1 March 2023 and close on 30 June 2023.

Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Rob Steane said the expo is a great learning opportunity.

“The Maroondah Kinder Expo provides a fantastic opportunity for parents and carers to learn about kinder in Maroondah, such as what kinder options there are, how and when to enrol, funding and how to support their child’s transition to kinder.

“I encourage families with young children to come along, speak with Council representatives and educators and ask any questions they might have,” Cr Steane said.

Families can visit stallholders and learn about Maroondah Integrated Kindergarten Association (MIKA, Maroondah’s central enrolment system) and Maroondah Kindergarten Outreach Program.

Families can also speak with:

  • Representatives from Council and local MIKA kindergartens
  • Council’s Maternal and Child Health Nurses
  • Council’s immunisation staff
  • Council’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Coordinator.

Council’s Kindergarten Officers will be onsite to support families who may require translation assistance (Hakha Chin, Falam Chin, Burmese).
