Enrolment and fees - McKay Children's Centre

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 4 about an orientation session. This will be a 1-hour session where you can ask questions.

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


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

The parent contribution is $392 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or pay 4 instalments of $98 each term.

Lunch time care is $6.50 per day.

We offer other programs that may have an additional cost.

When to pay

We will invoice each term via your child’s communication pocket.

Payments are due at the beginning of each term.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.
