Boroondara Preschool has ‘OPTED IN’ to the Free Kindergarten initiative. Applicable parent fees are outlined below:
Though under this scheme, our Preschool will run at a substantial financial loss. The amount of funding does not cover the costs of operating our kinder.
Without voluntary payments we will be unable to keep our group numbers low, have administrative support to keep up with increasing regulatory demands, provide incursions, maintain the upkeep of our grounds, cleanliness of our rooms and facilities and ensuring we have the supplies to create engaging activities and learning experiences for the children. Most importantly, it allows our kinder to keep our excellent teaching staff and the programs they individually design for their groups.
Without voluntary payments we are at risk of being financially unviable and are afraid that our wonderful Preschool will close and we will no longer continue to be part of the community for generations to come.
Therefore, we are asking families to consider donating the amount of $200 per term to ensure we can continue our quality Preschool program and keep up with our day to day running costs.
An enrolment deposit of $200 will be charged to secure your child’s position prior to starting Term 1. This enrolment deposit will be refunded upon commencement at the service. However, families also have the option to donate this enrolment deposit
As Boroondara Preschool is a community based sessional kindergarten, parents are strongly encouraged to attend 2 working bees throughout the year. If parents are unable to attend, we encourage families to make a maintenance donation to help with the upkeep of our grounds and facilities. N.B In prior years, families have contributed $130 per year in lieu of working bee attendance.
