Please give us a call and make an appointment to ensure the right people dedicate the right amount of time to your visit. 

Eligibility

Pymble Turramurra Pre-school provides for children who are old enough to attend school the following year.

Children must turn 4 before 31st July to attend Pymble Turramurra Pre-school.

Step 1- Waitlisting

A child may be placed on the Pre-school waiting list as soon as they have turned 2 years of age.
Please complete:

  1. Waitlist Application Form and return it to the Pre-school along with
  2. Pay a $50.00 (includes GST) non-refundable, non-transferable Application Fee
  3. Provide a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate

Your child’s name will then be added to the Wait List according to the date and time it was received and within two weeks, you will receive a confirmation email. Parents must notify Pymble Turramurra Pre-school of any change of contact details during this Waitlist time.   If parents cannot be contacted at the time enrolments start, the place will be offered to the next child on the list. Parents should also contact the Pre-school if the place will no longer be required.

In the case of a family making multiple applications for enrolment for the same year, this fee is payable per application up to a maximum of $100.00 (includes GST).

Step 2- Enrolment

Once you have been offered a place at Pymble Turramurra Pre-school and you wish to proceed, you will be requested to:

  1. Complete an Enrolment Form and return within seven days
  2. Pay a $200.00 (includes GST) non-refundable, non-transferable enrolment fee. (This fee includes the annual $3.00 Membership Fee.)
  3. Provide a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate
  4. Provide your child’s up to date Immunisation Record

To secure your child’s position, you will need to pay approximately 50% of the term one fees by 1st November in  the year prior. This non-refundable payment will be deducted from the next fee invoice. Parents who do not wish to commit to a place by paying this fee will forfeit their secured position, however they may request to remain on the waitlist.  The Pre-school carefully plans the dynamics of each class, hold orientation days and give children the opportunity to meet their teacher in the year prior to entry, and secured enrolments help to facilitate this.

Step 3- Orientation

Parents are encouraged to familiarise themselves and their child with the centre prior to commencement. Orientation days and a parent information evening are arranged to assist during this transition time and you will be given an enrolment kit containing more detailed information at this time.
