Children may be offered a position at the Preschool from the age of 3. When a position is offered and accepted a $250 placement bond and an enrolment fee of $50 is payable. The placement bond will secure your position at the Preschool and is deducted or refunded off your Term 4 fees when your child is leaving for Primary School. Should you need to leave the Preschool mid-year we ask that you provide 4 weeks notice in order to have your bond returned. The enrolment fee is a non refundable payment and includes our enrolment pack.
