Enrolment and fees - Port Pirie Community Kindergarten

Enrolling your child

You can register your interest to enrol your child with us by using the preschool enrolment registration form (Word 283KB). 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 September about an orientation session. This will be a 1-hour session where you will find out about the kindergarten and can ask questions.

Before your child starts preschool you 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.

Fees

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

The parent contribution is $300 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or to pay 4 instalments of $75 at the beginning of each term.

Our pre-entry cost is $35 for the term.

We offer other programs that may have an additional cost.

Concessions

Concessions are available for families with a health care card or Centrelink concession card.

Our concession is $260 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or to pay 4 instalments of $65 at the beginning of each term.

When to pay

You will receive an invoice at the start of each term. Your invoice will be placed in your child’s communication pocket.

Payments are due by week 5 of each term.
