As a community not for profit organisation, the preschool is funded primarily by fees along with an operational subsidy received from the Department of Education & Communities. Fundraising is conducted during the year to cover the cost of visiting performers and additional resources. A tax deductible building fund is available for donations to assist in funding our long term capital works programs.
The Management Committee and educators are proud to provide very high quality early childhood education which is accessible to all children and their families in the community. Our fees for 2016 are $22.00 per day for children from a disadvantaged background, $32.00 per day for children in the year before school, and $45.00 per day for three year old children. If you are interested in placing your child on our waiting list please complete the Waiting List Application or contact us by phone, email, or in person.
The enrolment process begins in July each year and places are offered based on a number of factors including duration of details on the waiting list, date of birth, siblings, existing children and the needs of the child and family. An open afternoon is held in Term 3 each year and prospective families are encouraged to attend.
Once a position is offered, a $50 non refundable enrolment fee is payable to confirm your child’s place. At this time you will be advised of orientation sessions and administrative requirements to complete the enrolment process.
