Enrolment Policy and Information
What year will my child attend?
When we offer placements
We will contact families by email in June of the year before your pre-prep child starts Kindy.
At times it may be possible to offer pre-prep age children 5 days/ week. It may also be possible to offer enrolment to children who have already turned 3 years old. This occurs only if places are still available after all pre-prep age children on the waiting list have been offered a place.
Waiting list for enrolment
Please use the online waiting list form (see Enrolment Form below) or visit the centre in person. As soon as there is a place for your child we will contact you. We recommend placing your child's name on the list from birth.
