Enrolment Procedure – Join the Waiting List

Our centre operates a waiting list system in strict order of receipt of applications. There is an $20 waiting list fee. The earlier they are on the list, the better the chances of securing a place.
Applications open from July for children born in the previous 1 July – 30 June period.


The Red Hill Kindergarten offers a Pre-Prep program for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 year old children. There are 4 groups attending either 5 days per fortnight or 2 days per week. A 3 year old group is also available one day per week for children born July to December.

We offer no Extended Hours Care or Vacation Care Programs.

The Pre-Prep program generally corresponds with school term and school vacation periods and is offered 40 weeks of the year.

Place Allocation

We start allocating places mid-year (via email – please ensure we have your correct and current email address) so you will not hear anything before this time. An allocation letter is forwarded to parents/carers offering a place at the Kindergarten and outlining the above including any deposits required for the securing of a placement. Please note that a placement is not guaranteed until all deposits have been received.
