The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development provides per capita funding as a contribution towards the cost of providing the 4 year old preschool program. The kindergarten is responsible for all expenses.
Fees are necessary because there is a shortfall between the level of government funding and the costs of operating a viable preschool. The government does not fund three year old preschool. The Committee has the discretion to withdraw service for non-payment of fees.
However for all of 2021, the Victorian Government will be fully funding the 4 year old kinder program and offering support to our unfunded 3 year old. NO FEES WILL BE CHARGED FOR 2021.
Fees for 4 Year Old kinder 2021 are$0 per term (usually $410 per term)(Parents who hold an eligible Concession Card will not be required to pay any fees)
Fees for 3 Year Old kinder 2021 are $0 per term ( ususally $310.00 per term)
Jacaranda Preschool has a Ezypay option for fees, enquire within.
