How to enrol

  • We enjoy welcoming new families to our Hillsdon community and endeavour to make the process as easy as possible for you.  Families do not need to come from a particular catchment area to enrol their child at our kindergarten. 

    Take a tour

    We welcome prospective families to visit our kindergarten and experience our beautiful learning environment. The best way to experience Hillsdon is to take a tour with our Director, Sharon Ross. Please contact us to make an appointment. You are also very welcome to attend the Hillsdon Fete or Art Show, which occur in alternate years.

    Booking form

    If you would like to put your child on our waiting list, please complete this Booking Form and return it via email or drop it into us in person.

    Booking fee

    Please include a $20 non-refundable booking fee with your booking form. You can pay in cash, via Eftpos or credit card at the kindergarten or if you would prefer to email the booking form to us, please phone or email us and we will provide our bank account details so you can pay by direct deposit. 

    Waiting list

    Payment of the booking fee ensures your child is placed on the waiting list for the year they are entitled to attend but does not guarantee a place at the centre if we have more children on the waiting list than places available. We are happy to accept children on our waiting list as soon as they are born and we encourage you to place your child’s name on the list as early as possible.

    Offers of a place

    We contact prospective families in July of the year prior to a child’s correct year to attend to offer them a place for the following year. Families have two weeks in which to pay the $200 non-refundable deposit to secure their child’s place. Once the deposit is paid, we send an email confirmation and the $200 deposit is then deducted from the first term’s fees.

    Getting started

    We hold a children’s orientation afternoon for each of the four class groups during term four of the year prior to the child starting as well as a parent curriculum information evening and an enrolment interview.
