Enrolment Information

For any enquiries regarding enrolment please feel free to phone us on 08 8278 3596 or email us directly at dl.4608.leaders@schools.sa.edu.au

When you have chosen to enrol with us, your child will be placed on our waiting list. To enrol your child we will need information from you such as your child's full name, home address, date of birth, parent contact details etc.

Enrolments will be determined in accordance with the Preschool Enrolment Policy of the Department of Children’s Services and Child Development (DECD) and our own Preschool Priority of Access Policy.

The Department of Children's Services and Child Development Preschool Enrolment Policy states:
"From 2014, children are entitled to access four terms of preschool in the year before they start school as follows:

  1. If a child turns four years of age before 1 May, they may start preschool in Term 1 in that year

  2. If a child turns four years of age on or after 1 May, they are eligible to start preschool from the beginning of Term 1 in the following year.

In addition, Aboriginal children and children under the guardianship of the Minister for Education and Child Development may, subject to resource capability (to be assessed on a termly basis), start preschool after their third birthday. A child may attend up to 12 hours per week initially, increasing up to 15 hours per week at the beginning of the year that the child turns four years of age before 1 May. Aboriginal children and children under the guardianship of the Minister for Education and Child Development may have an extended period in preschool up to 6 years of age, when they are required to enrol in school. "

When your child's enrolment has been completed with us, you will be sent a letter outlining our Transition visits.
