Children who turn four within a financial year are eligible for kindergarten which usually acts as a part time early education program prior to children entering primary school.
The current program allows 14,000 Queensland families access to free kindergarten including First Nations families, disadvantaged families and families with triplets.
Another 26,000 families can receive between $500 and $3,500 off kindergarten costs dependent on whether the child attends a sessional kindergarten and other factors.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she believes the government can do more to ease the financial pressure on Queensland families.
