How to enrol your child at Bega Preschool

Phone or email us for an enrolment form. Initially we will ask you for the following details;

  • Your child's name

  • Your child's date of birth

  • Is your child of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent?

  • Does your child have additional needs?

  • Do you have a Health Care card with your child's name on it?

  • One or both parents name/s, contact number/s and email/s

With these details we will place your child on the waiting list and email you an enrolment form and General Information for New Families. We will need you to complete the enrolment form and return it to us along with copies of your child's birth certificate, current Immunisation History statement and Health Care card (if applicable).

If your child has any medical conditions (eg: asthma) we will need their Asthma Management Plan from your GP and once enrolled we will need their labelled medication.

Children can attend preschool from the age of 3 years old.

PLEASE NOTE - Priority of Access Guidelines:

The Dept. of Education stipulates priority of access guidelines for preschools. These guidelines mean that we must give priority to:

  • Children who turn 4 by the 31st July of the current preschool year - meaning they are eligible to attend school the following year.

  • Children from low income families (Holding a Low Income Health Care card)

  • Children from an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background

  • Children with Additional Needs

  • Children from families whose primary language is not English.

Once we have received all of the mandatory enrolment paperwork we will then contact you when a place is available.

Classes for the following year are allocated between August and October of the year prior to your child attending preschool.

All children are offered a 2-day program for their child.
