Greater Shepparton City Council coordinates registrations for 4-Year-Old Kindergartens and most 3-Year-Old Kindergartens (previously called Pre-Kindergarten) in the Greater Shepparton region.

Kindergarten is important because it provides developmentally appropriate programs that further the social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical development of children.
