Elanora Heights Community Preschool gives priority of access to enrolment in accordance with NSW Department of Education funding guidelines (as amended from time to time) and our Enrolment Policy.
Please Note: Registering your child’s name on the waiting list does not guarantee enrolment at the preschool. We do our best to cater for the needs of our families, but first preference of days or educators cannot be guaranteed. Siblings are not automatically added to the waiting list, it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure a waiting list form has been completed. It is also important for families to make sure their details are kept up-to-date, including phone number, address or email address.
