Kinder and Pre-Kinder fees for 2020 are $320 per term -$1280 per year.

While Kindergarten (4 year old) is partly subsidised by the Department of Education & Training, Pre-Kinder (3 year old) is not; making it a user-pays service. This is why the fees remain the same despite the difference in hours.

Payment of fees

Fees for Term 1 2020 are payable upon enrolment to ensure your place in the program, and must be paid before the first kinder session of the year.

For subsequent terms, invoices will be issued two weeks prior to school holidays, and must be paid before your child commences each term.

Kindergarten Fee Subsidy

Families who are eligible for the Kindergarten Fee Subsidy, i.e. Health Care Card holders, will be required to provide evidence of their eligibility and will then not be required to make fee payments.

If evidence of eligibility is not provided, fees will be required to be paid before your child commences the term.

If you are experiencing difficulty in paying your fees please contact the Early Years Coordinator or the West Wimmera Shire Council Finance Department as soon as possible to discuss options. Payment plans and Centrepay can be made available.
