Kindergarten 2024 - Information Session

Three-year-old and four-year-old Hubbub kinder


Are you confused about kindergarten? What's the difference between integrated and sessional kinder, anyway?  

Happy Hubbub is taking part in the Twilight Kindergarten Open Evening to answer these questions and more! Understand your options, and learn about Happy Hubbub's integrated and sessional kindergarten programs, as well as the on-site co-working options for parents. 

Background Info

The Victorian Government provides funding to support children to access a high quality kindergarten program in the two years before they start school. The funding is a contribution towards meeting the cost of the kindergarten program.

Free Kinder

As well as the traditional kinder funding mentioned above, Happy Hubbub is participating in the Victorian Government’s Free Kinder funding, which means a saving for families of up to $2,500 per child, each year. 

Integrated program

If your child attends a kindergarten program within a long day care setting (integrated kinder, which Hubbub offers Mon–Fri year-round), the Free Kinder subsidy offsets the kindergarten component of your out-of-pocket fees. This will provide a free program for some families and a significantly reduced cost for other families, depending on the number of days attended, and the amount of Commonwealth subsidy (CCS) received.

Sessional program

If your child attends a sessional kindergarten program, there are no out-of-pocket fees for the family. Sessional kinder is 15 hours per week, 40 weeks per year (following school terms), for a total of 600 hours of funded kinder. 

Note: Happy Hubbub is offering a sessional kinder option: Thu/Fri, 9am–4.30pm.
