Making the final decision of choosing the right preschool that meets your child’s needs may seem daunting. This is why Oakhurst Preschool offers complete transparency and support in the process. In order to make this a positive experience for you, we recommend parents to schedule a visit. Our educators take you through our facility and explain about the different areas, our teaching practices, our daily routine and more. We wholeheartedly look forward to any queries and ensure your queries are resolved to your satisfaction.

Process Before Enrollment :

  • Fill in the enrolment form that includes information about you and your child, including- allergies, dietary requirements, sleeping habits, interests, etc.
  • A non-refundable bond of $200 is required to secure your position.

Once your child has started care please feel free to call the centre to check on them throughout the day.


Fees must be paid each week on the first day of your child’s attendance. A receipt will be issued for all the fees. A cash receipt will be given when your payment is made for both EFT and cash payments. Payment by credit card will incur a surcharge of $2 per transaction. In addition, a printed tax receipt will be placed in your child’s wall pocket for collection once the payment has been credited to your account. Fees are charged on a daily rate based on the room that your child is in. A refundable bond of $200 is payable on enrolment. This bond will be put towards your last two weeks’ fees when notice of withdrawal is received. Your child’s fee is determined by your income and any childcare benefit or Rebate that you are entitled to. Please speak to our office staff to find out our current fees.
