Kindergarten Outreach Support is a free program that supports multicultural families in Monash enrol in and attend kindergarten.  

If a family does not speak English at home, our Kindergarten Outreach Support officer can work together to connect them with inclusive early years services and overcome language barriers.  

What is Kindergarten Outreach Support? 

The program can help families with:  

  • Enrolling in kindergarten and learning about the Victorian Government's free kindergarten program. 
  • Accessing Early Start Kindergarten if you’re a family with a refugee or asylum seeker background. 
  • Transitioning from kindergarten to primary school. 
  • Connecting with playgroups, maternal and child health services and other early childhood services. 

The Kindergarten Outreach Program for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) families is funded by the Victorian Government’s Department of Education and Training.
