At SKBK we operate as a long day care Kindergarten, providing families who need care for their children earlier and later in the day
7:30am-6pm for 48 weeks of the year, including school holidays in between terms, we close for 4 weeks during Dec/Jan.
2022: $110.00, each year fees are reviewed and generally increase by 4%
As we operate as a long day care kindergarten you can utilise as many or as little hours during the day, however the daily fee remains the same.
In 2023 families enrolled in our funded Kindergarten program will receive $2000 to go against their fees in increments over the year (more information about this can be found here: www.vic.gov.au/give-your-child-the-best-start-in-life).
Our Kindergarten teachers are in ratio between 8:50am and 2:30pm Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours each room is supported by an additional 5 early childhood educators.
We offer a play-based program to three- to five-year-old children in a rich and stimulating learning environment. Our children are supported to explore and discover; who they are, their capabilities and their role in our changing world.
You will need to provide your children with daily lunches and snacks to sustain them throughout the day. We encourage a nude food policy to reduce packaging and landfill. SKBK do provide the children with fresh fruit and vegetables for both morning and afternoon tea.
We are registered for 55 places, however we provide 52 places across two rooms: 28 places in the Narrang room (4-5 year olds) and 24 places in the Bundabun room (3-4 year olds) to enable 3 places to be available for vulnerable children and families in our community.
You can book a tour at SKBK using this form. However, if none of these dates or times suit you, please contact the team on 9534 6488 and set up a more suitable time.
