Fees & Enrolment

The Preschool has opted into the Victorian Government’s free kindergarten scheme, therefore both 3-year-old and 4-year-old groups will be provided to all families without any out-of-pocket expenses.

Your child can only be funded for a kindergarten place at one service at any one time. Each child is eligible for one year in a Three-Year-Old Kindergarten program and one year in a Four-Year-Old Kindergarten program. A second year of Four-Year-Old funding is only available in limited circumstances where your child has a genuine learning or developmental delay identified by an educator and which is supported by a formal diagnosis from a medical professional.

If your child will be attending another service that offers a funded kindergarten program (i.e. at long day care) and you intend to utilise the funding for the Three or Four-Year-Old program offered by the other service you cannot accept a position at our preschool. We are a not for profit sessional preschool and we cannot offer unfunded positions. Therefore you will need to notify the other service provider that you are receiving a funded kindergarten place at our Preschool and would like to apply your funding towards our funded program.  As our program is free for next year, we will only be receiving funding from the government to cover the costs of running our Preschool. If you opt in to receiving your funding at another service you will be unable to keep your position at Acacia Avenue Preschool. We can only accept children who are eligible for funding here.

Please refer to our Free Kindergarten Fees policy for more information.

Donations and Giving Tree

Whilst the Preschool receives funding from the Department of Education, we still rely on donations from families. We greatly appreciate and welcome all donations.

To assist families in knowing what the Preschool requires, we have created ‘the Acacia Avenue Giving Tree’. The tree is located in the foyer/deck area of the kinder. The tree is filled with tags with various items the Preschool requires, such as toilet paper, cleaning products, wipes, etc. purchasing items from the Giving Tree is a huge help to the Preschool.
