Early Entry

Your child may be able to come to preschool 1 term earlier, in term 4 the year before starting their preschool year, if they:
– have additional needs or a disability

Early entry is for up to 6 hours per week, if places are available. Access is decided on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us if you would like more information about early entry.


The parent contribution is $440 per year. There is an early bird rate for families who pay the total amount during the first 4 weeks of Term 1. This price is $400. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or pay in 4 instalments of $110 at the beginning of each term. Payments are required within the first 4 weeks of each term. These fees cover the costs of cleaning, ground maintenance, art supplies, learning resources and administration costs.

Families experiencing difficulty in paying their fees are encouraged to speak with our Director Pip. Excursions and incursions may incur an additional cost.
