Schools, kindergartens and childcare services


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.
