There is an enrolment application fee of $55 at the time of lodging an application.

Interviews for places in Kindergarten, Pre-Kindy and Wattle Glow Preschool are held in August/September for enrolments in the following year.
If the child’s enrolment application is successful, the parents/caregivers will be notified in writing and at that point, the parents/caregivers are required to pay the non-refundable enrolment fee of $400 (this fee is per family who have children concurrently enrolled). The sessional enrolment fee is $200 with a further $200 to be paid when the child enrols in Kindergarten. For Preschool enrolments, there is a $200 enrolment bond payable prior to child commencing which is refunded at the end of the child’s enrolment providing the term fees have been finalised. These fees are used to provide income for capital works at the school.
