Dual Model

Our Prep School Readiness class operates under a dual model, offering families a choice in fees and attendance for their child.

ACECQA approval allows us to operate prep under the same framework as our Kingsford ELC campus:

  • longer hours (7:30 am – 6 pm), 
  • no term breaks, 
  • access to the government Child Care Subsidy (CCS) 

Operating our preparatory program as an ELC allows families to sign up for 3, 4 or 5 days a week for 48 weeks of the year and to access CCS.

We will also offer families the choice of signing up for our original preparatory model, which requires full-time attendance 5 days a week in term times only (38 weeks of the year). This option does not attract CCS but may be preferable for some families.

Both models will continue to integrate a holistic preschool program led by university-qualified Early Childhood Educators who create an environment where fun and educational play experiences, spontaneous activities, and guided learning encounters provide your child with the social and emotional support needed to enter into the Primary school environment.
