To enrol at Kindy, children should be 3 months old to register on our waitlist. Any offers of a place in a class is made in order of priority as per our priority of access policy. Children cannot start in a class until they have turned 3.
Joining our waitlist
Parents are asked to complete a waitlist application form and provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate and immunisation record from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). Upon applying a fee of $50 is required to cover administration costs. This fee is non-refundable. Registering on our waitlist does not guarantee an offer of a class place.
Offered a place in class
Once offered a position in class, a bond deposit of $300 is payable. The bond is held on account for the duration of enrolment and is applied as a credit in your last terms invoice.
Invoices for preschool fees and charges are to be paid by the term either by direct deposit to our bank account or by electronic options available in Storypark. Payment in installments over the term is possible; upon arrangement at the office. The office staffed Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 1.30pm, during NSW school term time only.
Parents do not pay for Public Holidays which fall on their child’s usual attendance days.
Fees are still payable for holidays taken during normal term time and if your child is away due to illness.
From 2023 a maintenance levy of approx $200 per term is charged to all families. This levy is used for general maintenance, classroom consumables, incursions and entertainment, replacement & repairs to equipment, preschool provided hat & wet bag. This levy is partially refundable at the end of the year for families who have helped in working bees’ & other center maintenance. No other levies are payable.
