Preschool sessions:

We have one intake at the beginning of the year for children who turn 4 years of age before 1st May in their eligible year.

Children currently may access up to 15 hours of preschool a week.

Please refer to our ‘Priority of Access Policy’ available in the Policies and Procedures tab for details about our local catchment area.

Session Times:

Group A: Monday and Tuesdays 8:30-3:00, and alternate Fridays 8:30-1:30.
Group B: Wednesday and Thusdays 8:30-3:00, and alternate Fridays 8:30-1:30.

Fees:

$170 per term.

This will reduce to $600 per year if fees are paid in full before the end of week 3 of term 1.

Transition and Orientation:

Depending on our capacity, transition visits known as our ‘Stay and Play’ sessions may be offered in term 4 for children starting the following year. This consists of 3 x 90 minute visits for children accompanied with an adult to become familiar with our environment and our staff before beginning in Term 1.

Early Entry:

Early Entry sessions for children with additional needs may be offered depending on our capacity and your child’s eligibility (e.g, specific diagnosis and or professional reports). Please speak with the Director for more information if you feel your child may be eligible for an Early Entry program.

Child care:

We are located next door to Happy Valley Community Childcare Centre. Whilst we are separate sites, we work closely together to ensure continuity for the families we share, and for strategic planning for the sites.

Families who utilise the child care centre and our kindergarten can expect that their child will be walked to kindergarten in the morning at the beginning of the session by a child care staff member. At the end of the kindy session, they will be walked back to child care by a kindergarten staff member.

Please contact Happy Valley Community Childcare Centre directly if you wish to enquire about enrolment and bookings with them. They can be contacted by phone (8381 1380).
