We welcome new enrolments for both our 3-year-old and 4-year-old programs. 

Places for our 4-year-old program fill particularly quickly, so we recommend families submit an enrolment application form as soon as possible to avoid missing out. Children enrolled in our 3-year-old program have a higher chance of being accepted in our 4-year-old program, should the number of applications be greater than the number of places.

 

Enrolment process

  • Make an enquiry by visiting the preschool, or calling 03 9754 5392 to receive an enrolment package. You can also download an enrolment application form here
  • Return your enrolment application form to the preschool. This can be done any time after 1 January in the year three years prior to the child’s commencement in the 4-year-old program, or two years prior to the child’s commencement in the 3-year-old program. The cut-off date for enrolment applications is 30 June in the year preceding the year of enrolment. All enrolment applications received after this date will be placed on a waiting list.

  • Offers for places will be sent out around mid-year in the year preceding the year of enrolment. To confirm your place, a deposit must be received within 10 business days. Second-round offers commence after initial cut-off date.
