Enrolment and fees - Minlaton District Early Learning 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 with dates for pre-entry transition visits as well as a family information session which will have an opportunity to ask questions.

Before they start preschool your child 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 $320. This is set each year at the governing council annual general meeting. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or speak with us to pay via instalments of $80 each term or via another payment plan.

We offer other programs that may have additional costs.

When to pay

We will invoice you by March via your child's message pocket.

Full payment is due during term 1 or each term if you are paying via instalments.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.
