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 if:
- you have had other children attend the preschool
- your child is enrolled to attend Seaview Downs Primary School
- you have other children already attending Seaview Downs Primary School.
We may also consider:
- distance of your family home from the priority catchment boundary
- opportunities for your child to attend another preschool.
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 October about an orientation session. This session includes general information about our kindergarten and will give you the opportunity to ask questions.
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 is $680 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or to pay 4 instalments of $170 at the beginning of each term.
We offer other programs that may have an additional cost.
When to pay
We will invoice you at the beginning of each term. An invoice will be put in your child's note pocket.
Payments are due by the end of week 4 of each term.
Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.
