3 Year Old Kindergarten Sessions & Fees

3 YEAR OLD KINDERGARTEN

In 2019, our kindergarten will be implementing an integrated model for our 3-year-old program, whereby a minimum group of four 3-year old’s attend within the 4-year-old program for shorter periods of time throughout the day. The children will be placed into 1 of 6 groups (Green, Yellow, Aqua, Pink, Orange or Purple) and will attend 2 x 3 hour sessions twice a week or 1 x 4.5 hour session once a week.

The 2019 timetable is as follows:

Green Group:

Fundraising Levy

All families are required to pay a $50.00 Fundraising Levy. This levy has been introduced in lieu of running multiple fundraising events throughout the year to raise much needed funds to assist with covering the costs of purchasing and replacing materials and equipment, incursions and excursions, and maintenance work. The Fundraising Levy is non-refundable. From time to time, the centre may run small fundraising events that relate directly to the kindergarten programs, i.e. Mother’s/Father’s Day activities, Christmas Raffle etc.
