Fees include all meals, powdered formula milk for babies up to one year of age and nappies (parents are welcome to provide their own brands if they prefer).  The Nursery seeks to accommodate each family’s circumstances but encourages full-day sessions, particularly as a child approaches Pre-Prep and school age to enable better preparation and continuity with teaching and care.

Parents have a choice of paying monthly via direct debit or termly in advance.  Childcare vouchers and tax free childcare payments are accepted for payment of fees.

Pre-Prep (Year-Round Provision)

Pre-Prep is open for children to attend 50 weeks of the year, closing for a two week Christmas break and public holidays.
 

There are a range of various packages available in our Pre-Prep as we develop and equip children for full-time schooling and learning that will continue and last a lifetime. 

The different packages enable families entitled to the various forms of government-funded childcare to benefit and maximise the support of families, particularly those with working parents.  While core-hours are from 8.30am - 3.30pm during term-time and 8.00am-4.00pm during school holiday periods, there are many options which enable the School to provide families with ‘wrap-around’ care. 

From the term after a child turns 3, they will be eligible for 15 hours of Early Years funding with some children eligible for further support of up to 30 hours per week (funding is available for up to a maximum of 38 weeks a year).
