Mt Colah Preschool Kindergarten, Mt Colah NSW
Your child can commence at Mt Colah Preschool Kindergarten when they are three years of age. You will need to place your child on our Waiting List. It is advisable to do this as early as possible.
We invite you to visit us to meet the wonderful team of Educators, experience the environment we offer and see the Preschool in action for yourself.
To complete the Waiting List Application please download our Waiting List Application Form and return it to Preschool either in person or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (02) 9476 4101 and we will send a Waiting List Application to you.
Our fees are payable fortnightly in advance and you will receive an account statement each fortnight. Payments can be made by cheque or direct deposit.
Child Care Benefit
All families can apply for Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate (CCR) through the Family Assistance Office. Please visit the Family Assistance website or ring 13 61 50 to discuss your families entitlements. For more information please click this link: http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/information/family-assistance-website
You may choose to have your CCB and/or CCR paid into your Preschool account to decrease your weekly fee, or pay full fees and directly receive a lump sum payment at the end of the financial year from the Government. It is your responsibility to contact the Family Assistance Office as soon as possible as CCB or CCR payments cannot be processed until we receive Parent and Child Customer Reference Numbers (CRN).
Once you are advised of a commencement date for your child we will discuss with you a variety of ways to become familiar with Preschool routines. At the end of every year we conduct an Orientation Programme for the children commencing the following January. This provides a great opportunity for the children to become familiar with Educators and our learning environment. It also provides an opportunity for parents to receive further information and a chance to ask any questions they may have. For those children who join us during the year, you are invited to come along to visit Preschool with a family member and spend some time becoming familiar with our Educators and learning environment, prior to your first day.
What your child will need to bring each day:
Separation anxiety can be an issue when your child first commences at Preschool. If you feel this is a concern for you and your child, please discuss this with our Educators. We have written an information brochure on Starting Kindergarten, if you have any concerns you may find this brochure helpful. Because we offer a structured daily routine at Preschool we find the children feel quite secure and settle in quickly.
Our Educators place high priority on building a strong relationship with you and your child and they look forward to speaking with you on your child’s days of attendance. The Educators are keen to know any information you may wish to pass on about your child at drop off times and the Educators will also chat with you at pick up time to update you regarding your child’s day. We enjoy working with you to support your child’s development and to ensure their Preschool experience is a happy and rewarding one.
