From 2023, fee relief for families announced as “Affordable Pre-school” will provide community and mobile pre-schools with sustained long-term funding to deliver at least 600 hours of low-cost Pre-school.
The funding for your child’s fee relief will be provided to the Pre-school, directly from the NSW Government, and we will pass this fee relief on to you as a reduction to your fees. You cannot receive fee relief at more than one early childhood education service. If your child will be attending another service that offers fee relief (another community preschool or a long day care service), you will need to choose which service you would like to receive fee relief from. All parents will need to fill out a fee declaration form prior to Friday, 16 December 2022 (included in your orientation pack).
The funding provided does not cover all the operational costs of the Pre-school and so a gap payment will be charged to parents.

A $200 per term maintenance levy (non-refundable) will also be invoiced to pay for budgeted essential services, safety, and maintenance, including:
- Consumables and cleaning materials
- Utilities and essential services
- Maintenance of the building and grounds, including tree maintenance
- Annual safety checks
To secure your child’s place at Pre-school and to prevent last minute enrolment withdrawals, an upfront deposit payment of $400 will be required and will be direct debited via Storypark Manage on the Monday, 12 December 2022. It will be deducted from Term 1 fees.
If you have any further questions or enquiries, please contact the Pre-school via email at [email protected] or phone 9449 1445.
