Fee Payment

All fees are to be paid weekly by automatic payment (AP). We do not provide eftpos or banking facilities at the kindergarten.  Parents are asked to set up the AP one week in advance. Statements are sent out monthly. The first Monday of the month.  

5 Year Old Fee

The education sector recognizes that in today's society childhood is getting shorter.   Primary schools are now changing to play based learning and with the legal requirement that children do not need to be enrolled at primary school until their 6th birthday we are able to offer care and education for children who are 5 and at an affordable fee.
