Enrolment and fees - Magill 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.

Once children within the catchment area have been placed, consideration may be given if you have had other children attend 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

We will contact you in September about an orientation session for parents. This will be a 1-hour session where you can ask questions. You will have a choice of a daytime or evening session.

Before they start preschool your child can come to pre-entry transition visits. These will be in November 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 for 2021 is $540 for the whole year plus a $45 fundraising levy. We ask parents to pay in three installments of $180 plus $15 fundraising levy in terms 1,2 and 3. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or to pay by installment.

When to pay

We will invoice you towards the end of each term for the following term. Your invoice will detail your payment, the fundraising levy and the cost of any excursions.

Payments are due before the beginning of each term.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.
