Can I claim my Kindergarten fees through the Child Care Subsidy?
This service primarily provides an early educational program to children in the year that is 2 years before Grade 1 of school (such as a pre-school or kindergarten). Therefore, Yack Kinder is ineligible as an approved care service - this means that you cannot claim the Child Care Subsidy CCS for Kinder and/or After Kinder Care fees.
Health Care Card Holders
Kindergarten fees are subsidised by DET for those families who hold Health Care
Cards (HCC) or Pension Cards (PC). It is important to register as a Health Care Card holder at your enrolment interview in August by bringing along a current HCC. A copy of the current HCC or Pension Card will be made by Kindergarten staff and kept on record, so that the kinder may obtain the additional funding. Your own kindergarten term fees will then be reduced significantly. This information will be dealt with confidentially. You will receive the subsidy for the full year if your HCC does not expire during the kindergarten year.
However, if the card does expire during the kindergarten year, the subsidy will only
apply to the term fees in which the card is current.
Students at Yackandandah Kindergarten are encouraged to dress in the kindergarten uniform, which includes a Yackandandah Kindergarten t-shirt for summer and a windcheater for winter, as well as a sun hat to be worn in the warmer months. Kinder uniform is not compulsory however.
The Yackandandah Kinder is the sole supplier of its kinder logo'd t-shirts, windcheaters and hats. Parents of children enrolling for 2021 kinder will be offered a uniform order form at the time of interview, and will receive their order prior to the commencement of Term 1, 2021. A uniform display is available in the foyer, along with order forms.
Uniforms can be ordered throughout the year.
