Kindergarten in brisbane

Recommended Posts

Hey wonder if anyone can help. We are potentially coming out to oz in the new year on a 457 visa. My husband will be working with myself looking after a newborn (due Dec) and a 4 year old. I won’t be working initially and we as far as I know won’t get any financial help for childcare. What are the cheaper kindergarten’s all about? Are they like gold dust? I’m after finding some childcare for a couple of days a week to keep my 4 yr old in the routine she is in here before she would be due to go to school jan 19. I believe it’s good for her but while I’m not working we just can’t afford day care fees... any knowledge on this greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi @lisawhite123 here's a good site to find out about Kindy's in Queensland https://www.qld.gov.au/education/earlychildhood/programs/pages/age

And here https://det.qld.gov.au/earlychildhood/families/search for finding a kindy. Cheapest isn't always best (I understand your circumstances). Click on the purple 'find kindergarten or pre-school' tab and then you can search from there. Best to have a look at how each provider has 'scored' against the the assessment and rating process. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, ACECQA, is responsible for ensuring consistency in assessment and ratings across Australia and you can see (once you've found the kindy  you want to look at) how they fared this assessment round.

Don't want to bombard you with info, however, here is info about when you child can attend prep / school https://www.qld.gov.au/education/earlychildhood/prep/pages/enrolments
