Fee free preschool

The Department of Education aims to make Preschool available to ensure the most disadvantaged children within the local community are able to access a quality early childhood service.


Public preschool services will be supported to provide 600 hours of free preschool. This is approximately 15 hours or 5 days a fortnight in the majority of preschool settings.


Children bring their own morning tea and lunch to Preschool in accordance with the ‘Good for kids’ healthy food guidelines, and also reflects our low waste approach to packaging. Families supply a water bottle for their child each day, as well as a sun safe hat. On enrolment each year, families are asked for a donation of consumable items such as hand soap, paper towel, tissues and dishwashing liquid.
