Enrolment notification process

Fees

Our 2022 Statement of Fees is available.

Fees are $45.00 per day for 2022 or $4500.00 per annum.

If you are eligible for QKFS Plus Kindy Support, fees are reduced to $10.86 a day or $1086.00 per annum, including the portfolio fee.

Shows and visitors to the centre are included in the fees, although staff may plan excursions at a minimal cost to families. Committee may decide to run fundraisers if necessary e.g. Bunnings sausage sizzle.

QKFS Plus Kindy Support

QKFS Plus Kindy Support provides low cost kindy to eligible families. Please note it does not fully cover the full fees.

The subsidy for 2022 is $3414.00. This leaves an out-of-pocket expense of $1086.00 for the year.

You will be eligible for QKFS Plus Kindy Support if you:

  • hold a current Australian Government Health Care Card (or are enrolling a child who does)
  • are a foster family with a current Australian Government Health Care Card
    identify as being Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (or have a child who does)
  • have 3 or more children, of the same age, enrolled in the same year.

The subsidy is provided directly to Springwood Kindy to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. You can only claim the subsidy at one facility.
