Enrolment Policy

  • Children must have turned 3 or meet the requirements of the ‘Attendance Before 3’ policy before they can attend. Children whose birthdays fall after June 30 must enrol for the following year.

 

  • Parents wishing to hold a place for a child turning 3 later in the term, must pay full fees from the beginning of the year. Fees are non-refundable (subject to the conditions of the Fees Policy).

 

  • Children who do not meet the requirements of the ‘Attendance Before 3’ policy, may attend a minimum of one session per fortnight (depending on how many other children under the age of 3 are enrolled) prior to their 3rd birthday provided a parent or guardian stays with them.

  • Children of current committee members are given first priority to enrol. Any other children will be enrolled on a first come, first served basis.
  • The committee may offer parents the opportunity to pay a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold a place for their child until enrolment night.  Parents must then attend the enrolment night to complete the enrolment for their child, or the place may be offered to another child and the deposit forfeited.  The deposit will be deducted from the Term 1 fee on enrolment.

  • An enrolment form must be completed by each enrolling family.
  • Enrolment is not confirmed until full Term fee has been paid.
  • A parent or guardian of every child must stay for the first prekindy session their child attends.
  •  Enrolment forms will be updated annually, and when a family’s circumstances change, to ensure information is current and correct.
  • Enrolment information will be kept in a confidential file.  Access to this information is only available to staff, parents, committee and Licensing Unit staff.

  • Subject to any State or Federal Equal Opportunity legislation, the prekindy reserves the right to exclude a child from the Service for any reason connected to the welfare of the child and the welfare of staff and other children or parents who use the service.
  • Parents/Guardians must provide copies of birth certificates and immunisation records for enrolment.
  • Our preference is for children be toilet trained.
