2024 Fees

Bellevue kindergarten has opted into the 'Free Kinder Scheme' as a trial for 2024 in good faith that parents will pay a one-time parent contribution to ensure that our high quality programs are not compromised and our costs as a non-for-profit kindergarten are covered.

3yr old Caterpillar  

15 hours per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 9:00am - 2:00pm)

      $NIL per term  

4yr old Butterfly  

18 hours per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 8:30am - 2:30pm)

      $400 per term      

Additional costs:

Security Deposit: $150 plus full term 1 fees (if applicable) to secure a place

To secure your position at Bellevue Kindergarten, you will be asked to pay a security deposit of $150 plus full term 1 fees (if applicable), upon enrolment. The $150 payment can be refunded when the year is underway or we kindly ask you to donate this amount to the kindergarten.

$10 SunSmart Hat

Each child will be supplied with their own SunSmart hat to wear when participating in outdoor play.

 

$1,200 Parent Contribution per Year

Bellevue Kindergarten kindly requests a ONE TIME annual parent contribution from families to compensate the shortfall between the 'FREE KINDER' funding ($2,500 per child) and the actual running cost (over $9,000 per child) of the kindergarten. We ask for this contribution to allow us to offer our current program and employ our highly qualified staff whilst continuing to opt into the 'FREE KINDER' program.

Incursions

Whilst opting in to the ‘Free Kinder Scheme,’ Bellevue Kindergarten will still be offering the many wonderful incursions they have offered in previous years. We will be asking for donations to cover the cost of these incursions in the week leading up to the event.
