Kindergarten Infrastructure Services Plan (KISP)

The Victorian Government has committed to implement two years of universal funded kindergarten over a 10-year roll-out, providing another year of play-based learning for all children before the commencement of primary school.

The reform requires an expansion of kindergarten services in Victoria and will be rolled out in stages across the Peninsula from 2022 – 2029.

A Kindergarten Infrastructure Services Plan (KISP) has been developed by the Victorian Government in conjunction with the Shire to support service planning and includes information about:

  • the current capacity and demand for funded kindergarten in the Shire
  • forecast demand for Three- and Four-Year-Old Kindergarten
  • expectations about how demand growth will be accommodated over the roll-out (for example, the use of existing capacity and building new or expanded capacity, and the role of different types of provision).

While the KISP is not a funding document, Local Government and not-for-profit kindergarten providers seeking co-investments through the Building Blocks Capacity Building stream must refer to, and align their proposed project with, the infrastructure need identified in the KISP.
