OPENING HOURS & FEES
When we operate
Our preschool hours are:
8am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday.
Extended care from 3:30-4:00pm is available for an additional fee. Priority is given to working families.
Children come in 2 or 3 day sessions as follows:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
We are closed during school holidays.
As Gymea Preschool is a Not for Profit Community Based Preschool, Federal Government Child Care Subsidy is not available. We do however, receive an annual State Government Grant which significantly reduces Fee Rates.
A further fee subsidy is available to Equity Groups: Low Income families, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and Families of children with a Diagnosed Disability.
Fees are determined by the funding made available to us by the NSW Department of Education each year.
After School care is $10 per session.
Please contact the Preschool for our current daily fee rate.
Please note: Due to Free Preschool Covid-19 Funding from the NSW Department of Education, there are currently no fees for 2 days of each child's attendance.
However, families are still required to provide relevant documentation to be eligible for Equity Fees (low income health care card). Families of children with disabilities or developmental delays will be required to provide documentation from relevant health professionals to be eligible for lower fees.
