We start offering places for a Kindergarten year around June in the year before commencement. We make offers based on contact information in the Wait List applications so please ensure your contact details are up to date.

The waiting list is long. Is it still worth putting my child’s name on the list?
Yes. Our waiting lists are open from birth so over the years families move out of the area or their work circumstances change. The number of offers made varies from year to year and the best way to ensure you are contacted if a position becomes available is to be on the wait list.
My child is already on the waiting list. When will I be contacted regarding enrolment?
Our enrolment process begins around June of the year prior to commencement. Offers are made based on available positons and where the child is on the wait list. Offers are usually performed via email. The first round of offers are made and a timeframe given to accept an offer. If an offer is declined or the time period for acceptance passes an offer will be made to the next child on the wait list. This process can take many weeks and it is important that prospective families ensure that all their contact details are up to date.
What do your fees include?
The Term fees include visitors to the Centre, fun days, cooking experiences, individual portfolios and a commemorative photo slideshow.
Will my child have access to a computer?
Yes. Opportunities are available to the children.
