The Fees for 2022 are:
For 3YO Kindergarten:
From 2022, as part of the Victorian State Government’s Reform, Wilson Street Kindergarten will receive funding for 5 hours out of the 9 hour 3YO program. In 2022 our 3YO program fees will be $650 per term.
Research shows that play-based learning is a powerful way to support children’s development and these benefits last well into school years and beyond. Evidence shows that two years are better than one when it comes to early learning.
If a child’s birthday falls between January and April, the family can decide whether to enrol their child in the year they turn three or the following year. It is important to note that children can only attend our 3YO program once they have turned three and not before.
As part of the new model all children accessing 3YO kindergarten will transition to 4YO kindergarten the following year. Only children who meet the criteria for a second year of 4YO kindergarten will be eligible to access an additional year of 4YO kindergarten. As a result of this, it is important for families to carefully consider the best time to enrol their child in 3YO kindergarten as children will be unable to repeat 3YO kindergarten from 2022.
Families eligible for the Kindergarten Fee Subsidy will be required to pay for four hours of the 9 hour program, which will be $290 per term. The KFS deduction amount is subject to change as more information is made available to centre on the funding for 2022.
For 4YO Kindergarten:
If you are a healthcare card holder there is a fee payable for the additional hours for Red & Blue Group above the funded 15 hours per week. To enquire about rates for Health Care Card Holders (HCC) please contact our Fee Manager, Nadia Hobart via email firstname.lastname@example.org
