When making an application for a place at Yidarra, please note the following:

  • For entry at the four year old Kindergarten level, it is important that we receive your child’s application for enrolment at least 2 years before they are due to commence Kindergarten, as waiting lists are compiled and interviews are conducted in the previous year. To be eligible for enrolment, children must turn 4 years of age before 30 June in the same year they are due to start Kindergarten. Term 1 for Kindergarten–Year 6 commences in January/February each year. See the Admission DOB Classes.

  • If we are unable to offer a place for your child immediately, the enrolment form will remain on our waiting list and will automatically roll over from year to year, unless you officially request in writing that we withdraw the application.
