The Kindergarten Parent Opinion Survey is an annual online survey that seeks feedback from parents of children who are enrolled in a funded kindergarten program in Victoria.
All funded kindergarten providers, including long day care centres and non-government schools, are asked to provide details of the survey to parents of children enrolled in a funded Three or Four-Year-Old Kindergarten program and encourage them to participate. The survey includes questions on parent experience and satisfaction with their child's kindergarten program.
The 2021 survey includes new questions regarding Free Kinder and learning from home.
The results are used for reporting in the Victorian Budget papers and may be used by services for planning and improving service quality.
The 2021 survey will run from Wednesday 24 November to Wednesday 15 December 2021 and will be administered by the Social Research Centre. In 2021, the survey will be available in 10 languages other than English - Mandarin, Vietnamese, Arabic, Hindi, Punjabi, Cantonese, Urdu, Sinhalese, Tamil, and Dari.
Service providers will be emailed a unique survey link to email or SMS to parents prior to the survey opening. Information postcards for parents will also be provided to services.
