Fees

Doris Blackburn is partly funded by the Victorian Government who provides us with a ‘per capita grant’ for every eligible child enrolled in the 3 & 4 year old group. 

The per capita grant covers 15 hours for 4YO and 5 hours for 3YO of preschool for children. Fees and fundraising contribute towards the difference between the funding and the cost of running the preschool.
Fees are essential to the successful running of the preschool and our budget is worked out to keep fees as low as possible but to still cover our costs.

In 2022, the preschool fees will be:

  • 4YO

    • $495.00 per term (3 x 15hrs sessions), which includes a $15 fundraising levy.

    • Holders of a current health care card will be eligible for a reduced fee.  

  • 3YO 

    • $200.00 per term (1 x 5hr session), which includes a $15 fundraising levy.
