Kindy Club Program
We are offering a class in 2021 which caters for our pre-kindergarten children, this class is called Kindy Club. To be eligible for this program your child must be 3 years of age and attending our Kindergarten in 2022.
Kindy Club is a pre-kindergarten class that is filled with fun age appropriate learning experiences. The aim of the program is to help the child become familiar with our kindergarten before their actual kindergarten year at Tarragindi War Memorial Kindergarten.
The program is on a Wednesday during school terms.
The fees are $450.00 per term (10 weeks).
Term 1 2021 will begin on Wednesday 27th January 2021
Offers of enrolment occur mid-year, the year prior to your child’s attendance at Kindy. For example, mid 2018 for attendance in 2019. Please ensure your contact details are accurate and kept up to date. Please contact us if you need to amend your contact details.
In 2020, fees will be applied using two separate fee structures, depending on the program selected. Additional funds for resources and capital works are raised by the committee through fundraising (including our annual Festival) and grants. See table below for fees for 2020.
Fee discounts available to eligible Health Care Card and Pension Concession card holders. Please enquire at the office.
