Fees

Pymble Turramurra Pre-school receives some funding from the NSW Government via the Department of Community Services for children who could attend school the following year and disadvantaged families. Usually this covers approximately 25% of the Pre-school’s operating expenses.  The remainder of our expenses are covered by fees which are set each year by the Board of Management.

Fees are payable in three instalments at the beginning of Terms 1, 2 and 3. 

Invoices are issued at the conclusion of the previous term.  A maintenance contribution towards maintaining our beautiful grounds is also payable by each child on their commencement at Pre-school. This is included in the Term 1 fee invoice or on commencement.

A fee deposit is required in Term 4 of the year prior to your child commencing Pre-school. This non-refundable deposit secures your child’s position at the Pre-school and is deducted from your child’s Term 1 fees.

Pymble Turramurra Pre-school understands that there are circumstances which can make meeting fee payments difficult, and as a community Pre-school will consider alternative payment arrangements. Please contact the Pymble Turramurra Pre-school Fees Officer if you wish to discuss fee payments.
