Alternatively complete the (Online Form Here). Once payment is received your child will be placed in line for a spot as it becomes available. Please note this is an expression of interest and does not guarantee your child a place.

Registration Fees can be paid to the following bank account:

Children turning four before June 30th will always be given first preference at our Kindergarten, as our main goal is to have children prep ready, therefore we need to make the opportunity as readily available as we can.  Our class sizes are only small with 22 children to 3 educators, this means that we can not place everybody, so by getting in as early as possible on the waiting list you will ensure a greater chance of receiving a place when the time comes. As soon as a position becomes available we will generally email and the family have 7 days to respond, if we do not hear back in that time we will automatically go onto the next person on the list, so please make sure you keep your contact details up to date at all times.


Please be aware that without payment of the Registration Fee we can not hold your child's details on file after seven days, also please make sure if you change any of your contact details that you let us know, especially your email, if we can't contact you we may offer your spot to another child.


It is important to note that we can take children from the age of 3 that are toilet trained, however preference is given to children going to prep the following year.  Once we have filled the places with all the available children in that age group we will then fill any available spots with the younger three year olds.
