Fees

Fees apply for both the three and four year old kindergarten sessions at our kindergarten.

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development provides per capita funding as a contribution towards the cost of operating the 4 year old kindergarten program (15 hours) and as of 2022, also the 3 year old program (5 hours).

Despite government funding for our 3 year old and 4 year old kindergarten places there is still a shortfall between what is received and the cost of operating our preschool which is why fees are necessary.

The Administration & Enrolments Officer can provide further details when enrolling your child. Fees are due prior to the commencement of each term. Once enrolled you will receive an invoice for the designated fee for your child/ren. Payment of fees is made directly to the pre-school via EFT.

Family Involvement

The education of children is a collaborative process, and families are active participants.

Throughout the year, families are invited to;

  • Join the Committee of Management or a sub-committee
  • Attend the AGM/ Information night
  • Participate in social events during, and outside of, kinder hours

Family help within the Educational Programs

BRPS encourages family involvement in all areas of the educational programs.

This could include;

  • Education session helpers
  • Excursions
  • Beach Kinder program
  • Housekeeping requests

Levies

Family help within the Educational Program is not considered part of the family involvement levy.

The BRPS family involvement levy of $250 is paid as prior to the commencement of Term 1, and is required to be paid by every family, including concession and pension card holders. A portion is refunded once a family member has completed and has authorised attendance at four (4) events or tasks. These could include;

  • BRPS Fundraising Events – Bunning’s Sausage Sizzle or Cake Stall rostered help
  • Working bees – Maintenance days
  • Maintenance tasks as requested by C.O.M
  • Management of tasks at fundraising events

Those who actively participate in Committee of Management (C.O.M) positions are also eligible to receive the Family Involvement Levy refund at the end of the year.

In most cases each event or task is expected to be 2-3hrs of support.

Working bees are held on a Saturday or Sunday morning and run for approximately 3 hours. Only one person from each family is required to attend.
