Parent Information


Children are entitled to access 4 terms (1 year) of government preschool in the year before they start school.

We are introducing a mid-year intake into preschool. This means that from 2023 children who turn 4 years old:

before 1 May are eligible to start preschool at the beginning of the year.
on 1 May to 31 October can commence preschool through the mid-year intake at the start of term 3 of that year.
Regardless of whether your child starts at the beginning of the year, or through a mid-year intake they will undertake 4 terms of preschool.

Children who turn 4 years after 31 October will be eligible to commence preschool at the start of the following year.

If you’re unsure about the best time for your child to start preschool, talk to your preschool director or school principal about your options.

Parent Contribution

Kindergarten has a Parent Contribution of $200 per term which is reviewed by the Governing Council at the end of each year.


Cumberland Kindergarten is staffed by a full time Director, full time Teacher and one part time Early Childhood Worker. We also have access to additional staff through the Preschool Support Program and Bilingual Support Program.
