  • Jack & Jill participates in the Free Kinder scheme therefore fees are nil for 15 hours of kindergarten per week in both Junior and Senior groups.
  • There is a term fee payable for the Senior group children registered in the Friday additional day as this is outside the funded kindergarten program.
  • The $150 enrolment fee (payable when enrolling at the kindergarten) is offered as a refund once your child commences in the kinder program. There will be no refund if the child withdraws prior to commencement.
