Enrolment and fees - West Lakes Shore Kindergarten

Enrolling your child

You can fill in our waiting list form (PDF 318KB) for the kindy. 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 your child gets a place, we will send a letter early in term 3 offering a position at our kindergarten to families in the local catchment area. After getting this letter families will have to provide us with:

  • proof of residence (contract of sale or rental agreement)
  • utility bill (not water)
  • birth certificate
  • immunisation records or exemptions.

Once we have sighted these documents you will receive detailed enrolment forms and we will send out orientation letters for a visit in term 4. We will then follow our priority of access guidelines to offer positions to the families that meet the criteria.

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

Orientation days are in term 4. These are held in the afternoon and provide families with an opportunity to meet staff, other children, and explore the kindergarten environment. Educators will do a presentation on the day to parents about kindergarten routines, policies and our philosophy.

Fees

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

The parent contribution for our kindergarten is $660 per year. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or pay an instalment of $220 in terms 1, 2, and 3.

When to pay

We will put an invoice in your child's communication pocket.

Payments are due in week 5 each term.

Please speak to us if you are having difficulty paying and would like to work out a payment plan.
