Enrolment and fees - Clarence Gardens Kindergarten

Enrolling your child

You can register your interest to enrol your child with us by using the preschool registration of interest form. This form is also available from us.

Try to register your interest by 30 June, but you can do this any time during the year.

Priority will be given to children living in our catchment area. If you don’t live in our catchment area you should indicate at least 2 other preschool options on your form.

If we can give your child a place with us we’ll send you an offer letter in term 3. You can accept the offer by filling in and sending back the acceptance slip by the due date.

Before your child starts

We will contact you in August about finalising the enrolment process. Once this has been confirmed all families will be invited to a parent induction session. This will be a 1-hour session where you can meet staff and ask questions.

Before they start preschool your child can come to 2 pre-entry transition visits. These will be in term 4 and will be a chance for your child to meet the staff, become familiar with our environment and play with other children.


We ask you to contribute towards the cost of your child attending preschool.

The parent contribution is:

  • $205 per term for 5 sessions – 2 full days and 1 half day (includes lunch care and an excursion levy)
  • $190 per term for 4 sessions – 2 full days (includes lunch care and an excursion levy)
  • $150 per term for 4 sessions – 1 full day and 2 half days (includes 1 lunch care and an excursion levy).

We offer other programs that may have additional costs.
