Enrolment and fees - Kathleen Mellor Preschool 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.

Fill in our preliminary enrolment enquiry form (Word 215KB) and send it back to the kindergarten.

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

Before they start preschool your child can come to pre-entry transition visits. These will be in terms 3 and 4 and will be a chance for your child to meet the staff and other children. We will contact you about session availability in term 2.


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

The parent contribution is $100 per term for terms 1 and 2, and $150 for terms 3 and 4.

We offer other programs that may have additional costs.


Arrangements can be made with the director to pay weekly or fortnightly if that is more convenient.

When to pay

We will invoice you in week 1 each term via the parent pockets.

Payments are due in week 3 each term.

We might be able to reduce fees depending on your circumstances. Please talk to our director to work something out.

Cash or cheque

If you are paying by cash or cheque, please put the payment in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on the front. Put the envelope in the payment box outside the office.
