Transition into Junior School

It is our desire for your child to have a smooth transition into Junior School from ELC. Applications for enrolment into the Junior School will be subject to the College Enrolment Policy.

Fees

The ELC fee structure is yet to be determined. The fees will be competitive with other local preschool day care providers.

Child Care Subsidy

Our ELC will be an approved child care provider which means our families may be eligible to receive the Child Care Subsidy (CCS). To find out if you are eligible, visit the Human Services website.
