Hours & Fees

Opening Hours

Gumnut Kindy is open from 8.30am to 4.30 pm weekdays, with limited places for 8am starts if needed (at a small fee).

Your child may come from 9.00am to 3.00pm if that suits you better. All children must leave the centre by 4.30 pm as our licence stops at 4.30pm and staff finish for the day.

You are welcome to visit the centre from Tuesday through to Friday – please contact us to arrange a time to visit.


Fees are currently $92.00 per child, per day.
Parents are to provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

A $120 fundraising levy is payable by every family – $60 is payable at the beginning of the year and $60 is payable in July.

Upon enrolment you are required to place a $250 deposit in order to secure your position. This will be refunded to you when your child no longer attends the kindy and all outstanding fees are paid. Deposits are non refundable during the first six months of your child’s attendance.

What people say

“Dear Trish, Allira, Natalie, Jackie & Harriet,

Thankyou so much for your love and care for Israel for the last two years. Kindy has been an overwhelmingly happy and beneficial experience for him. Allira, thankyou for your kindness and for how regularly you communicated how Israel had been in the day. Jackie, you win the prize – you’re the only one whose name he knows… most days anyway. Thankyou for the interest you’ve shown in him. He obviously feels at home with you. Harriet, yours are the lessons he comes home talking about. Thanks too for your care toward our family and our encouraging chats. Trish, Israel hardly seems to know you exist, yet I know it’s you who sets the tone for his happy, peaceful days at Kindy. I love watching you quietly direct the children at their play – extending them, inspiring their imaginations, correcting them so gently.

Israel may not know your names, but your impact on his life has been very special.
