or cancellation of a confirmed enrolment place.

**   The 4yr old kindergarten program is partially funded by the government.  Each child is entitled to one year of government-funded 4yr old kindergarten (equal to 15 hrs per week).  (Funding for an additional repeated year of 4yr old kindergarten is only granted in exceptional circumstances).  The kindergarten receives such funding directly from the government on your child’s behalf.  The fees shown above are already inclusive of the government funding received by the kindergarten and represents the “gap payment” required to be paid over and above what the kindergarten has received by way of government funding.
 

Kindergarten fee subsidy

Families with a current Health Care/Pension Card are exempt from payment of kindergarten fees during Terms 1 & 2 which covers the 15hrs of funded kindergarten per week.  A copy of the relevant card must be provided to the kindergarten.  In terms 3 & 4, Health Care/Pension Card holders are required to pay a reduced amount which covers their child’s attendance for the extra non-funded time equal to an additional 3hrs.

 

Payment of fees

Invoices will be issued quarterly and must be paid in full by the due date.

 

Late Collection Charge

The Committee of Management reserves the right to implement a late collection charge when parents/guardians are frequently late in collecting a child (refer to Fee Information for Families).
