Annual Fees

Enrolment Fee: 

Families are charged an annual fee of $70.00 in order to cover costs associated with enrolment (t-shirt, hat & lunch bag), children’s portfolios as well as to assist the service in maintaining, repairing, replacing, purchasing equipment and materials along with reducing out of pocket costs to families for incurssion and excursions.  All of which enhances the educational program for all children. This fee is applicable for each child that attends the service and is charged per child per year of attendance. 

Assocaiation Levey:

All families are liable to pay a $5.00 Association Levy annually to confirm financial membership of the Association. This fee is applicable for each family that attends the service and must be paid in order for your child/ren to attend the service.  This fee ensures a member of the family is a financial member of our association and in doing so has the right to vote and have input into the preschool.
