Does my child have to wear a uniform?

An official uniform is not required, however families will have the opportunity to screen print a chosen item of clothing that can be purchased via the preschool in term one.

How do I pay my fees?

Preschool fees are split into four term fees.

Each term, invoices will be placed in your child’s notice pocket with the payment details included.

All payments are required to be made within two weeks of the invoice date.

All of your child’s fees must be paid directly into the Bendigo Bank. No cash to cheques are accepted.

Payment options are via internet banking OR direct deposit (taking cash into a Bendigo Bank branch and asking to deposit into the Preschool’s account.
