How do I enrol my child?
New families are always welcome at JCK. To experience our learning environment we invite families to visit and view our kindergarten. The best time to do this is when our administration assistant is at the kindergarten – usually on a Monday or Thursday.
Waiting list form
If you would like to put your child on our waiting list, please complete this waiting list form and return it via email or drop it into us in person. You are also welcome to call in to the centre to collect a form.
Waiting list fee
There is a $15 non-refundable fee with your waiting list form. You can pay in cash (correct money please) at the kindergarten or direct debit to our bank account (details are on the waiting list form).
Payment of the waiting list fee ensures your child is placed on the waiting list for the year they are entitled to attend, but it does not guarantee a place at the centre, if there are more children on the waiting list than places available. We are happy to accept children on our waiting list from birth and we encourage you to place your child’s name on the list as early as possible.
Offers of a place
We contact prospective families in May of the year prior to a child’s correct year of attendance to offer places for the following year. Families have two weeks in which to pay the $110 non-refundable enrolment deposit to secure their child’s place. Once the deposit is paid, you will receive email confirmation. A parent Orientation Evening is held in October and enrolment interviews are held with the teacher following this evening.
Term fees for 2020
A fee of $833.00 is charged for each 10-week term.
Each family is required to pay $55 maintenance levy per term.
Half of the Maintenance Levy is refunded at the end of the year if either parent has attended one working bee at the Centre during the year. One working bee must be attended per family for this refund.
Each family is required to pay $30 fundraising levy each term in lieu of any fundraising activities.
This money is used to purchase resources for the children.
JCK Membership fee
Each family pays an annual $15 membership fee
Visitors and shows
There are no charges for the many visitors and shows during the year.
