fees

Below are some frequently asked questions about our fees and fee structure.

What are the fees for 3 year old and 4 year old kinder?

In 2021, fees per term for 3 year old kinder are $630 per term. There are 4 terms in the year as we follow the school term calendar. The Department of Education is however contributing $400 per term in 2021, so the effective fees are only $230 per term.

 

In 2021, fees per term for 4 year old kinder would have been $585 per term. There are 4 terms in the year as we follow the school term calendar. The Department of Education has however offered free 4 four old kinder in 2021 and will contribute $530.50 per term to support this. No fees will therefore be levied in 2021

These figures are reviewed annually and are subject to change.

What happens to the fees if I start in the middle of a term/leave before the end of a term?

Fees will be pro-rated by the Fees Officer based on the time you attended the program.

What happens to the money I have paid if I withdraw from kindergarten before attending?

 

Any Term fees paid will be refunded. The $25 Application Fee is non-refundable and the $100 deposit (paid when accepting the position) is non-refundable.

Do I have to pay fees?

 

For 2021, no fees, including no application fee or maintenance levy, will be charged for the four year old program. 

The reduced fee of $230 per term, plus application fee and maintenance levy must still be paid for the three year old program. 

 

We expect that fees will be levied again in 2022, but this is subject to government advice.

How many hours are provided for the funded 4 year old program?

As the 4 year old program is funded by the Government, we are required to provide 600 hours of kinder (15 hours x 40 weeks).

How many hours are provided for 3 year old kinder?

7 hours per week (2 x 3.5 hour sessions)
