Enrolling at Birrahlee
If you are considering Birrahlee for your child, it is important to join our waiting list as soon as possible. Vacancies are filled in waiting list order according to date of application, however some exceptions apply.
Birrahlee gives priority to children who turn 4 years old before 31 July of the year they are attending. These children have enrolment priority to ensure as many children as possible receive at least one year at pre-school before entering school.
Children who are 3 and 4 years old, whose families have a low-income health care card or are of Aboriginal &Torres Strait Islander descent, are also given priority and are eligible for Government subsidies.
There are limited positions for children who are 3 and they must be 3 years old as of 31 January of the year attending.
Please note, there is a $100 non-refundable application fee per family. Enrolments are finalised in August and September for the following year. Upon acceptance of a place, a holding deposit is payable within 5 working days equivalent to 4 weeks’ fees. This amount is deducted from your child’s final term fees.
If you accept a position for the following school year, and cancel before the first school day in Term 4 of the current year, there is a $100 administration fee. After this day, no holding deposits will be refunded.
