Enrolment and fees - Houghton Preschool

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 orientation and transition sessions.

Before children start preschool they can come to pre-entry transition visits. These sessions are usually in term 4 and will be a chance for your child to meet us and other children.


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

The parent contribution is $340 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or to pay instalments of $85 each term.

We offer other programs that may have additional costs.

When to pay

We will invoice you by week 5 each term via your child's note pocket.

Payments are due by week 10 each term.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.

You can pay cash at the Paracombe Primary School front office.
