At the end of 2019 we will be upgrading our bathroom facilities. We will also be applying for a building grant to build on a second kindergarten room so that we can increase our enrolments which may include extra-long days, or funded three year old kindergarten groups.

The new Child Care Subsidy

From the 2nd of July 2018 the new Child Care Subsidy will replace the Child Care Benefit. From this date Registered Care will cease under the New Child Care Package. If the service primarily provides only a preschool or kindergarten program (like a standalone preschool), then this program will not attract the new subsidy.

As directed above, as of the 2nd of July 2018 Golden Square Kindergarten families will no longer be eligible for any rebate.

No Jab No Play

There is now a new legislation in place when enrolling your child in kindergarten that you must have a printed copy of your child’s immunisation record from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR). You can obtain this online through Medicare or the Express Plus Medicate mobile app.
