The kindergarten is split into a Red Group and a Blue Group.
Children from both groups attend 5 days a fortnight.
Yes, there is a non refundable fee of $15.
No, there is no catchment area for gaining a place at our kindergarten, anyone can put their child’s name on the waiting list. Your child must however turn 4yrs by 30th June of the year they are enrolled.
After the birth of your child, you can fill in an enrolment form and put their name on a waiting list. Please note that placing your child’s name on the waiting list does not automatically guarantee that the child will be enrolled at the centre. The sooner you put down your child’s name on the waiting list, the better the chance of getting a place.
Yes, kindergarten fees are set based on children attended all programmed days so fees are payable for the program whether your child attends or not.
The centre is operated by a management committee which is elected from the current parent body. The committee is formed at the Annual General Meeting and participation on the committee is optional.
As we are a community based kindergarten, we only receive a certain amount of government subsidies for running our kindergarten. In order to keep our fees within the means of families, we do run fundraising activities.
The committee includes an Fundraising Team who are responsible for organising the fundraising events. Parents are encouraged to support these events.
Children bring their own morning tea and lunch. At Manly Community Kindergarten we believe that good nutrition is essential for good health, growth and development so we encourage healthy food choices.
If your child has specific dietary requirements, please let our staff know.
