Schooling costs

The Government believes that every family should be able to access an affordable, high quality early childhood education for their child. The Preschool Fee policy will bring preschools in public schools in line with the wider early childhood sector in NSW where parents pay fees for their children to access a preschool education.

John Brotchie fees

The daily fee is $30. In 2022 the preschool fee has been waivered.

Fee relief

The Government has provided a range of fees for it's preschools so that families who are experiencing financial hardship and/or who have a Commonwealth Health Care Card are entitled to fee relief.

If you have any financial issues related to fees please discuss them with the principal. Parents can be assured that they can discuss issues relating to fees with the principal in absolute confidentiality.

Commonwealth child care benefit or the child care tax rebate

The Commonwealth Child Care Benefit and the Child Care Tax Rebate are only available to services that operate for extended hours (such as long day care) and the Department's preschool classes operate during school hours and do not provide extended hours. Therefore, if you attend John Brotchie Nursery School you will not be able to claim any Commonwealth Child Care Benefit and the Child Care Tax Rebate.
