Child Safe Standards

All Victorian organisations that provide services or facilities to children, including Mount Alexander Shire Council, are required by law to comply with the Child Safe Standards. For more information, please visit the Department of Health and Human Services website.

Kindergartens

We continuously strive to service our community better.

A number of pre-Schools operate in Mount Alexander Shire. All the pre-Schools operate independently of Council, and are managed by Committees of Management.

Children are eligible to attend pre-School if they have turned four by the end of April that year.

For more information or to arrange an enrolment, contact the particular pre-school of interest to you.
