Enrolment at Pre-School
Enrolment enquiries are always welcomed at Goulburn Pre-School. You are most welcome to visit Pre-School during our office hours of 9.30am to 2.30pm or at other times by appointment. We encourage all prospective families to visit our Pre-School and meet the educators.
We operate a waiting list for children wanting to attend Pre-School. Waiting List Applications are available from our website or from the office.
The Association membership fee of $5:50 (GST included). Priority of access for placements is done within the guidelines provided by our funding bodies.
The bulk of enrolments are completed by the Director between September and October for children to commence the following year. Families will receive an offer of placement and an enrolment pack with all of the required information. An invitation to an enrolment/orientation morning will be included for you to come to Pre-School to visit with your child and complete the enrolment forms.
Places will be offered throughout the year as vacancies are created. We try our best to meet your needs as well as finding the best possible group for your child.
Each year the attendance patterns of children vary. In response to the requirements of the funding guidelines under DEC and an increasing demand for additional days, Goulburn Pre-School has moved to set attendance patterns as follows:
2 day groups – Monday and Tuesday OR Thursday and Friday
3 day groups – Monday to Wednesday OR Wednesday to Friday
Groups are developed with careful consideration to the known needs of the children to ensure a good balance. It is expected that a position is accepted for the full pre-school year. Requests for variation in attendance patterns will depend on availability within the set groups.
