Enrolment and fees - Surrey Downs Kindergarten

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

There will be a pre-entry program in term 4 each year. This will be negotiated depending on funding and staffing. The pre-entry program costs $50.


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

The parent contribution is $440 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year with a $40 discount making the yearly fee $400 or pay 4 instalments of $110 each term.

We offer other programs that may have an additional cost.

When to pay

We will invoice you via your child's pocket at the kindy.

We have a policy that no child will miss out on kindergarten because of financial hardship. Please feel free to discuss any fee issues privately with the director.

How to pay

You can pay cash or cheque at the kindy. Please put the payment in one of the envelopes found on top of the red money box that is on the kitchen divider bench.
