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 has special rights or is from a cultural or linguistically diverse background.
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 a parent orientation session. This will be an evening session where you can meet other parents, learn about our program, procedures and policies, and ask questions.
Children beginning preschool the following year are welcome to attend our pre-entry transition program. These sessions will be in term 4 and are a chance for your child to meet our staff and other children. The fee for this transition program is $60.
We ask you to contribute towards the cost of your child attending preschool.
The parent contribution is $1200 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the start of the year or pay instalments of $300 each term. This includes all excursion/bus/program and consumables costs.
We offer other programs that may have additional costs.
When to pay
We will invoice you by week 2 each term via your parent communication pocket.
Payments are due by week 4 each term.
Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.
