* 4-year-old program is free for 2021 due to Government subsidy 

* the 3-year-old program is not subsidised, therefore has no discount for concession card holders

***Twins attending the kindergarten will receive a 10% discount to fees for the year.

Receipts are no longer issued by the Kinder for Term Fees, as per the change in Regulations in July 2018.

The Westgarth Kindergarten 4 year old program is supported by the Victorian Government.

Fee Refunds 
Term fees can only be refunded to families who notify the Committee that they are leaving the service prior to the start of term. These families will be able to receive a pro-rata reimbursement of any fees paid in advance. The Committee may consider a partial refund in other limited circumstances. All such requests must be addressed to the Committee in writing.

There will be no refund of fees if the program is unable to operate, or when the current qualified staff member is absent and Westgarth Kindergarten cannot obtain a qualified reliever.

Unpaid Fees
If you are experiencing financial hardship, please contact the Business Manager at admin@wgkg.vic.edu.au to discuss a special payment plan. 

Fees not paid by the due date will be followed up by:
  • An initial letter of warning giving ten (10) working days for payment.
  • After this time, the family will be contacted by telephone, or issued with a second notice.
  • If fees are still not paid, and a special payment plan is not agreed on, a final notice will be sent, stating that unless payment is made within ten (10) working days, there will no longer be a place available at the service for their child.
