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.
Priority will also be given:
- to children with an older sibling attending Pimpala Primary School
- to families who have had an older child attend this kindergarten in the past 5 years
- at the discretion of the director.
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 hold a parent information session in week 9 of term 3. This is a 1-hour session designed to familiarise you with the kindy, meet staff and have an opportunity to ask questions. At this session, you will nominate your pre-entry visit times and your preferred sessions for the following year.
Before your child starts preschool they can come to pre-entry visits. These are in term 4 and will be a chance for your child to meet the staff and other children and become familiar in the new setting.
We ask you to contribute towards the cost of your child attending preschool.
The parent contribution is $435 per annum. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year, each term, each fortnight or weekly.
We offer other programs that may have an additional cost.
When to pay
Parents will receive an invoice of $145 during the first week of terms 1, 2 & 3.
Payments are due by week 5.
Please speak with the director if you are having difficulty paying so that a payment plan can be negotiated.
