We offer 30 ECE hours per week – 6 hours per day, for children 3 to 6 years old. An optional charge of $5 per session is requested to cover the cost related with maintaining the special character of our school (Montessori trained teachers, specialist equipment, MANZ Membership). A minimum booking of three sessions per week is required.
We offer free sessions for two year olds. Spaces are limited and a minimum booking of three sessions per week is required. Please speak to Karen in our office.
Each family pays an annual subscription of $18 to the preschool. This covers the cost of newsletters, waiting lists, attending the preschool and being a friend of the society. This also entitles the member to vote on issues at the Annual General Meeting. There is also a non-refundable enrolment fee of $11.50 incl GST which is payable before your child’s name is put on the waiting list.
Work and Income Subsidies
WINZ childcare subsidies can be applied for to help with childcare costs. If you have a WINZ subsidy you are still responsible to ensure that your account is paid weekly at all times and any part not covered by the subsidy. It is your responsibility to let Work and Income know of any changes to circumstances or your child’s attendance. It is also your responsibility to inform Work and Income of any benefits you have through the 20 hours ECE scheme. Click here for further information on the WINZ website
A family discount is offered to families with 2 or more children enrolled. Please inquire.
