Our Fees

Fees 2024

START STRONG PRESCHOOL - 2 days per week for ALL CHILDREN that turn 3 or older by 31st July. This initiative is funded by NSW Education Early Childhood Directorate.

Start Strong Preschool supports all children in the 2 years prior to formal schooling to enable us to offer reduced fees. Depending upon criteria met, fees in this group range from $10 per day to $33 per day (reduced from our full fee of $57.50 per day) and will be discussed at your enrolment visit.

START STRONG FEE RELIEF - is additional financial support for children in the Start Strong category above. A Fee Relief Declaration form must be completed (part of your enrolment application). If your child attends multiple centres (preschools or long day care) you must choose only 1 centre to claim fee relief, this should be discussed with each centre your child attends. Fee relief is not income based or linked to CCS, we will not ask you for financial information.

At Warragamba Preschool fee relief enables us to further reduce your 2 days per week fees to zero fees, as well as supporting some other charges (will be discussed at your enrolment visit) There will be no cost to you for your child to attend our preschool 2 days per week if you choose Warragamba Preschool as your Fee Relief service.

2024 Full Fee $57.50 per day for children that do not meet the age criteria for Start Strong preschool.

CHILD CARE SUBSIDY (CCS) does not apply to any family using our centre. This is due to our term time operational hours.

Fees will be reviewed later in 2024 as funding information from NSW Education Early Childhood becomes available for 2025, families will be advised of any changes for next year. Fully funded preschool is not guaranteed to continue, fees may be implemented when necessary.
