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 Term 3 about an orientation session. This will be a 1-hour session where you can ask questions.
Before your child starts preschool you can come to pre-entry transition visits. These will be in term 4 and will be a chance for your child to meet the staff and other children.
We ask you to contribute towards the cost of your child attending preschool.
The parent contribution is $620 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or to pay 4 instalments of $155 at the beginning of each term.
We offer a playgroup session that has an additional cost.
When to pay
We will invoice you week 2 of each term via email.
Payments are due by week 4.
Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.
