If this is not possible, weekly or fortnightly installments are acceptable. All accounts should be paid in full no later than the second last week of term.

Payments can be made online, by credit car or by cash.

To pay in person, please fill out the details on the envelope provided by the preschool, and place in the Fees Box at each centre. If more than $100 cash is placed in the Fees Box, notification must be made to the administrator or nominated supervisor.
