Enrolment enquiries are very welcome. You can contact the preschool via phone or email or make an appointment to come in during our preschool office hours of 9am to 3pm on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday.

A confidential waiting list is maintained at the preschool. Families are advised to register their child on the waiting list as soon as possible after the child’s first birthday.

Please Note: Registering your child’s name on the waiting list does not guarantee enrolment at the preschool. We do our best to cater for the needs of our families, but first preference of days or educators cannot be guaranteed. Siblings are not automatically added to the waiting list, it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure a waiting list form has been completed. It is also important for families to make sure their details are kept up-to-date, including phone number, address or email address.

The bulk of our enrolments are completed in Terms Three and Four for children to commence the following year. Other places may be offered through the year if vacancies arise.

Thurgoona Preschool adheres to the Early Childhood Education and Care Grants Program Priority of Access Guidelines.
