Education and occupation data collection

Did you know that there is a Parental Education and Occupation details form to help service providers collect the education and occupation data they need from families, as part of the annual confirmation process? 

The form has been updated following a recent Kindergarten Information Management System (KIMS) upgrade. Reflecting changes in KIMS, the form now includes a single parent/guardian checkbox in the education and occupation screen, and a simplified layout. 

A copy of the updated Parental Education and Occupation details form, as well as a flyer you can give to families to explain the purpose of collecting this information, is available on the  Kindergarten Information Management System webpage.

Translations of these documents will also be available shortly.

Reminder to complete occupation and education information for all enrolments

Service providers must collect completed education and occupation information from the parents/guardians of all children enrolled in a funded kindergarten program as part of the annual confirmation process. 

It is essential that you collect this information and confirm your enrolments on time as this information is used to inform the calculation of School Readiness Funding (SRF) at your kindergarten service. The amount of SRF your service receives will be based on the needs of its children, as determined by their parent/guardian education and occupation information.
