Financial Incentives

The Victorian Government is giving qualified early childhood teachers the opportunity to receive financial incentives of $9,000 to $50,000 to work in services across Victoria delivering Three-Year-Old Kindergarten.

Location incentives of between $9,000 to $50,000 are available for early childhood teachers taking up roles in selected regional, rural and metro services that need extra support as they offer new kindergarten programs in 2022.

New Individual Incentives of $9,000 are available if you’re a qualified early childhood teacher taking up a role at any service offering Three-Year-Old Kindergarten and are:

  • ‘joining or rejoining’ early childhood education after working in a different field or industry, or
  • moving from interstate or New Zealand to take up a role.

All incentives are paid in instalments, at the start of employment, and at the end of your first, second and third years. You may be eligible for more than one type of incentive.


Anyone receiving an incentive, and who is moving more than 200 kilometres to take up a role, will also be eligible for relocation support. This is valued at:

  • $2,000 for those moving between 200 to 500 kilometres from their current home
  • $4,000 for those moving more than 500 kilometres
  • $6,000 for those moving from New Zealand.
