If your child has a medical action plan, please bring along a copy.

At this meeting the director will look over your child’s enrolment information, discuss with you how we can best support the needs of your child, along with looking at the availability of places.

Your child’s name will be added to the enrolment list for your preferred program and you will be offered a place – If no places are available in your chosen program you will be placed on a waiting list and enrolled in your second preference until a space becomes available.

After being offered a place you will be required to complete an Acceptance of Enrolment Form, requiring a bond payment of $200 (low income) or $400. This bond is fully refundable with one terms written notice of your intent to leave the preschool or when your child finishes at preschool and moves on to primary school. Any outstanding fees will be taken from the bond prior to refunds being made.

Upon receipt of the bond and Acceptance of Enrolment you will be given confirmation of your child’s enrolment and a start date and an orientation date, which is usually the day before they are due to start. You will be emailed a link to our Preschool Handbook and Code of Ethics prior to our orientation meeting. Please take the time to look over the handbook prior to the meeting.
