Fees for 2023

We are fully booked for 2023

General Information
  • Preschool fees are typically calculated on a 10 –11 week term based on a 41 or 42 week preschool year.
  • Fees are set by the Management Committee (Board) and are subject to change.
  • Fees are set in accordance with the Department of Education’s funding guideline.
  • To be eligible for a low income fee relief rate – families must present a copy of a Low Income Health Care card which lists both the parent and child’s full name – with the child listed as a dependant.
  • As the preschool is a non profit, community preschool, if family circumstances change and families no longer require fee relief, it would be appreciated if you could advise the preschool office.
  • Fees and levies are payable in full, in advance of each term in order to secure your child’s ongoing preschool place.



Membership Fee

A $25 waiting list/ membership fee is payable upon joining the waiting list. This fee is non refundable and non transferrable.

Security Bond

It is a condition of enrolment that a $300 security bond (refundable) is paid at the time of enrolment. 


Fundraising Levy

A fundraising levy has been introduced to relieve the parent body from the workload of organising and running fundraising events. We understand fundraising places a heavy burden on our small committee who have to balance their voluntary committee positions with work and family commitments. This levy will be reviewed annually. The committee reserves the right to hold a fundraising event if an opportunity arises or if the Preschool’s financial position requires it.

Start Strong for Community Preschool Funding

From early 2023, fee relief is available to all eligible families through the Start Strong for Community Preschools program. The fee relief will be passed on to you by Elanora Heights Community Preschool as a reduction to your fees. You will still need to pay any remaining fees and/or levies after the fee relief has been applied.
