long daycare, 3 – 5 year olds

All children attending the Armidale Montessori Preschool are involved in learning through the Preschool program each day. In order to provide the greatest flexibility for parents, our preschool offers enrolment under each of the funding streams allowed for within the early learning framework.

Enrolling your child under the Long DaycareAi??arrangement may suit you if:

  • You needAi??your child to attend Preschool during school holidays.
  • You are eligible for all, or part, of both Child Care Rebate and Child Care BenefitAi??available from the Australian government
  • You needAi??your child to attend Preschool before 8.00amAi??or after 3.30pm.

Fees are payable for 50 weeks of the year.Ai??Fees are invoiced weeklyAi??and are due within 2Ai??weeks from the invoice date. A direct debit option is available. The current fee structure for enrolment through theAi??Long DaycareAi??stream at Armidale Montessori PreschoolAi??is $68.50 per day.

If your family would prefer your child toAi??onlyAi??attend Preschool during NSW school termsAi??andAi??from 8.00amAi??toAi??3.30pmAi??each day, Ai??or you are not eligible for Australian Government rebates, enrolment in the Preschool stream may suit you better. If you prefer the Preschool stream, and still need care for extended hours, Armidale Montessori now offers after school care to children already enrolled with us.

If you are unsure which model would work best for your family, feel free to contact our Director for a confidential conversation about your options.
