Maintenance levy: $150 per year per child. This is a voluntary contribution. Deepdene Preschool Centre is a not-for-profit community kindergarten, run with the assistance of parent volunteers. We pride ourselves on maintaining the kindergarten room, equipment, garden and playground to the highest standard we can. In order to help with this we do have a one off annual voluntary maintenance levy that we ask families to consider contributing to. The maintenance levy will be used for things such as repairs to the kinder and equipment, updating the facilities when we can and general upkeep. We are grateful and appreciative of all contributions received. If you have further questions regarding how the maintenance levy is used please don’t hesitate to speak with staff.

The Victorian Government provides per capita funding to support children to access a kindergarten program in the year before they start school. This funding is a contribution towards meeting the cost of our 4yo kindergarten program and is based on the number of children enrolled in the 4yo program at Deepdene Preschool. The preschool meets the balance of the costs of delivering the 4yo program through fees. In 2022, our 3yo program will be partially funded by the government as part of the new 2 years funded kindergarten program.

In 2023 our kinder is part of the Victorian Government Free Kinder program providing free kinder to 3yo (10 hours free kinder) and 4yo (15 hours free kinder, optional additional hours are charged at full fee) children.
