3 Year Old Program

Three year old enrolments are made through TRY Children’s Services.  Please go to the following webpage and download the enrolment form:

https://trycs.org.au/eltham-north-preschool/

Enrolment applications for children to attend the 3 Year Old program will be accepted from the 1st March, the year prior to them attending.

Our 3 Year Old groups are privately funded and are run independently of the 4 Year Old groups.  Please note that enrolment in the 3 Year Old program does not automatically entitle a child to a place in the 4 Year Old program (enrolments in which are coordinated centrally by Nillumbik Council).

If you require a full copy of the Eltham North Preschool Enrolment Policy – 3 Year Old Program please go to https://trycs.org.au/eltham-north-preschool/.

4 Year Old Program

Eltham North Preschool is located in the Nillumbik Shire Council area.  Enrolment in 4 Year Old Programs offered by Nillumbik preschools is carried out by the Council.

The first step to enroll your child in our 4 Year Old Program is to register with the Council. Registrations open on the first business day in March each year, two years before your child is eligible to attend preschool.

You can apply online, or download the Council’s Central Enrolment Registration Form below, complete it and return it to Nillumbik Shire Council as per instructions on the form.  Alternatively you can obtain a copy of the form from the Preschool, Child & Maternal Health Centres or Nillumbik Council offices.

For further information about the Council’s Enrolment System, including eligibility for placement, selection criteria and frequently asked questions, see the Nillumbik Shire – Family & Children’s Services website.

In the year before attendance, the Council sends enrolment offers to families for places at our Preschool.  Once Council has notified the Preschool of accepted places, the Preschool sends enrolment documents to families that have accepted a place for their child.

Fees

The State Government provides preschools with a grant for every eligible four year old enrolled. Your attendance fees help to bridge the gap between the grant and the cost of running the centre. Fundraising is an additional and necessary supplement to this income.
