What if I want my 3 year old to go to kindergarten?
Some 3 year olds are eligible to join our program depending on their date of birth. Three year olds can join our Green Group, and can come for 2 years. Please email our office or call 40699293 to discuss your child and your family’s situation.
Can I get the concession rate?
The concession is funded by the Queensland and Australian governments. You can get the concession if your child is of eligible age and you:
have a valid health care card, or
have a valid pensioner concession card, or
hold a veteran’s affairs gold/white card, or
Identify as Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander or South Sea Islander, or
have had a multiple birth (three children or more) and all children attend kindy.
Are there any government rebates available?
From 2 July 2018, the Child Care Subsidy replaced all assistance payments, and children in kindergarten programs are no longer eligible. For more information on the Child Care Subsidy, visit the Department of Education's website.
How does Weipa Kindergarten decide fees?
As a not-for-profit organisation, Weipa Kindergarten reinvests any surplus back into our services and programs to better achieve outcomes for all children and communities. We aim to keep fees affordable for families and has developed a fee system to maximise family access to available subsidies.
I have more questions, who can I talk to?
