Enrolment & Fees

When your child can start preschool

Your child is entitled to access 1 year of preschool.

If your child turns 4 before 1 May, they can start preschool at the beginning of the year. If your child turns 4 on or after 1 May, they can start the next year.

If you want to delay your child’s start to preschool or you’re not sure about when they should start, please talk to us about your options.

If your child is Aboriginal or under guardianship (in care) they are eligible for 12 hours of preschool after they turn 3. They will then be eligible for 15 hours per week of preschool in the year before they start school.

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 disability.
  • Are learning English as an additional language or dialect.
  • Are at significant risk because of family circumstances.

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 want more information about early entry.

Enrolling your child

You can register your interest to enrol your child with us by using the preschool registration of interest form. This form is also available from us.

Try to register your interest by 30 June, but you can do this any time during the year.

Priority will be given to children living in our catchment area. If you don’t live in our catchment area you should indicate at least 2 other preschool options on your form.

If we can give your child a place with us we’ll send you an offer letter in term 3. You can accept the offer by filling in and sending back the acceptance slip by the due date.

Before your child starts

We will contact you in term 3 about an orientation session. This will be a 1-hour session where you can ask questions.

Before they start preschool your child can come to pre-entry transition visits. These will be in term 4 and are a chance for your child to meet our staff and other children.

Fees

We ask you to contribute towards the cost of your child attending preschool.

The parent contribution is $60 per term. You can choose to pay the total amount at the beginning of the year or pay 4 instalments of $60 each term.

We offer other programs that may have an additional cost.

When to pay

We will invoice by week 2 of each term via your child’s communication pocket.

Payments can be made at any time throughout the term.

Please contact us if you have difficulty paying. We will keep this confidential.

How to pay

Cash or cheque

You can pay cash or cheque at the front office of the North Ingle School. Please put the payment in a sealed envelope with your child’s full name on the front.

EFT information

You can pay by direct deposit online. Our bank details are provided on your invoice.

Please put your child’s full name as the reference.

Immunisations

When you enrol your child you will be asked to provide evidence of their immunisation status.
