Enrolment & Waiting List


We celebrate diversity and welcome families from all cultures and ethnicity.

1. In their final preschool year before commencing school (defined as turning either 4 or 5 years before 31st July each year)

2. Children who are from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent

3. Those whose family holds a current Low Income Health Care Card in the family name where the child is named as a dependant on the card 

4. Children with a diagnosed disability or children who are at risk of harm

As such, you may like to put your child's name down on our waiting list for subsequent years or for any position that may become available throughout the current year. 

Please note that your application only joins our wait list upon receipt of your  application fee outlined below and that joining our wait list, including paying the waiting list fee  does not guarantee a position.

Further information


As we are a shareholder corporation, once your first child gains a position in our preschool, you become a shareholder and remain so for up to three years after exiting the preschool. We reserve a number of positions each year for our 3 year old shareholder siblings in order to keep families together.
