Children turning three during the year

Children can only commence the kindergarten program when they have turned three years old. Full payment from the first day of Term 1 is required if the child is attending kindergarten. Children who have not yet turned three years old at the beginning of the kindergarten year may start on or after their third birthday. Where children do not attend from the beginning of the kindergarten year, fees will be calculated from their first day of attendance.


Late collection charge

BCYF reserves the right to implement a late collection charge when parent/guardian are frequently late in collecting a child (refer to Fee information for families).
