When is my child eligible to attend 3 year old kinder
Please note children who turn 3 years old between the commencement of Term 1 and 30th April will be allocated a place but cannot attend without a parent or guardian present during the entire session until they turn 3 years old. This is to ensure that Renown is meeting the regulations, mandated by the Department of Education, around child and staff ratios for children under 3 years of age.
Parents accepting a position for a child, who will not have turned 3 years by the commencement of Term 1, are still required to pay the full term fees to secure the place, even if the child does not attend. You may choose to enrol closer to your child’s birthday to avoid paying fees, however we cannot guarantee there will be vacancies at this time.
