How to enrol in kindy

Some services will have wait lists, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead to secure a place for your child.

What will I need when I enrol my child?

  • your child’s birth certificate
  • your child’s health and immunisation status
  • details of any court orders, or parenting orders or plans
  • details of any special requirements (disability, food allergies or other needs)
  • details of people allowed to pick up your child, and
  • who to contact in an emergency

I don’t have my child’s birth certificate, what do I do?

Don’t panic, if you don’t have your child’s birth certificate you can order it online, or visit your nearest courthouse or Queensland Government Agent Program (QGAP) office. Visit to find out more.
