FREE 2023

Highmount Preschool welcomes the Victorian Government’s announcement of Free Kinder from 2023 and is pleased to announce that our service will be participating in this initiative.  This means a saving of up to $2,500 per child, every year in both our 3 and 4-year-old kindergarten programs.

 “Having free kinder supports every Victorian child to get the best start in life no matter where they live. It is strongly encouraged that all children attend kinder programs for two years before school as a crucial part of their educational journey.”  (Victorian Government, Dept. of Early Childhood)

Voluntary Contributions

We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning and teaching in 2023, and we would like to invite your family to contribute a voluntary parent payment, to further support our funding from the Victorian Government.

 Highmount Preschool is committed to:

  • Supporting the Victorian Government’s Free Kindergarten initiative
  • Increasing access to quality kindergarten programs for all Victorian children
  • Ensuring there are no financial barriers for families wishing to access an early childhood program for their child/children
  • Maintaining confidentiality in relation to the financial circumstances of parents/guardians.

Throughout the preschool year we offer a wide-range of enhanced learning experiences and opportunities for children in both our three-year-old, and four-year-old kindergarten groups.

 To ensure that we can offer these important learning opportunities, we invite each family to contribute to our Voluntary Contribution Fund.

 Your support is greatly appreciated, and any additional contribution to the suggested amount will greatly enrich the children’s educational experience and learning outcomes.  Voluntary contributions are optional.
