Braidwood Preschool is partially funded by the NSW Government under the Start Strong Funding Program. This program provides the maximum funding for children attending 15 hours or more per week, who are aged in the year before school and for children aged 3 years whose family is on a low income.

The 2020 fees per day are:

  • Preschool (children aged 4 years before July 31): Full day $26.00 
  • Children aged 3 years (whose family is not on a low income): Full day $32.50; Half day (until 12.30pm): $26.00
  • Reduced Fee for second child in family aged over 3 years: $26.00
  • Reduced Income (children aged 3 to 5 years): $13.00
  • Children aged under 3 years: Full day: $58.50 Second child in family: $52.00

We request that families establish a direct debit to pay their fees. To arrange this, please contact our Clerk, Fay, by phoning our office on Wednesday or Thursday (4842 2128).

Fees are payable for the days your child is enrolled, including days when your child is absent. Your child may be able to ‘make up’ a day, (where spaces are available), if they are absent on their enrolled day. However this is not guaranteed. Please talk to staff about the possibility of a make up day.

The funding grant received from the Department is not enough to cover all the Preschool’s costs. The fees paid by parents and our Committee's fundraising activities are, therefore, an essential source of income and allow our Preschool to employ qualified experienced educators and to provide a quality Preschool program for all our children. Our Committee meets monthly and holds its Annual General Meeting each February. Association Membership joining fee is $1.10; annual fee is $2.20.

Parents can also help our Preschool by assisting on a Preschool day.
