What is Kindergarten Information Management System?
A secure online system for kindergarten funding applications, data collection, and reporting. Using information collected through previous reporting cycles, Kindergarten Information Management System (KIMS) prepopulates funding allocations for each service and only requires services to update information as circumstances change.
Funded service providers use KIMS to:
** apply for kindergarten funding for children in the years before starting school
** apply for Early Start Kindergarten funding
** update service or service provider details
** complete mandatory data collection processes
** add and update workforce information
** add and update program details
** submit declarations of eligibility for a second year of funded kindergarten
** start, re-start and end funding to a service.

Annual confirmation of kindergarten program data:
** Funded service providers must confirm data about the funded kindergarten program through the annual confirmation process.
** Data about the early childhood teachers, other educators, the program and enrolments must be submitted in KIMS to complete the annual confirmation process for a service.
** Once all required data is entered in KIMS, the data for the service can be confirmed. Actual annual funding will be calculated based on this confirmed data.
