Kinder Kits are back for 2023

Make sure your data on KIMS is up to date for next year’s Kinder Kit orders.

Kinder Kits

Kinder Kits are back again for 2023 and will be available for every eligible child enrolled in Three-Year-Old Kindergarten next year.

As orders for next year are being prepared using your provisional Three-Year-Old enrolment data in KIMS, please make sure your KIMS data is up to date by the end of October, including:

  • your service’s contact details
  • provisional 2023 Three-Year-Old Kindergarten enrolment numbers.

In November, our team will be contacting services to confirm your orders. If you are a service provider with more than one service, we will contact the primary contact listed in KIMS for your service provider to confirm kit orders for all services.

What’s in the kit?

Kinder Kit items have been carefully chosen to encourage creativity and open-ended play.

The kit includes books by Australian authors as well as toys and activities from Victorian designers and businesses. All items are child-safe and inclusive of Victoria’s diverse communities.

There are tips and ideas to help families engage with the kit and resources will also be available to support services to talk about the kits with families.

Children enrolled in a funded kindergarten program in the year before school will not be eligible to receive a Kinder Kit. Three-year-olds at long day care (LDC) services need to be enrolled in a funded Three-Year-Old Kindergarten program at the LDC to receive a kit.
