Preschool (Kindy)
Public schools have only one intake of pre-school/kindy children. All children will start pre-school in January if their fourth birthday is before 1st May and if their birthday is on or after 1st May, they will start the following year.

Children can start pre-entry Kindy one term before their fourth birthday.
This pre-entry session is currently provided on Monday mornings and the day is dependent on the number of enrolments.

Preschool children transition very comfortably into our Junior Primary classes. They visit our library weekly, join in at assemblies and have frequent visits between the Junior Primary classes and the preschool.

They also visit our playground and participate in whole school events e.g. Sports Days and other special days, to ensure they feel very comfortable starting school.

Preschool fees are $45 per term for five sessions. Fees are $15 per term for pre-entry children.

Playgroup fun at Noarlunga Downs P to 7 School
We have a Playgroup that meets in the Kindy on Friday mornings from 9 - 11am. There is no cost as we are a “Learning Together Playgroup” and they cover the insurances and affiliation to the Playgroup Association. We ask that parents bring a piece of fruit for their child to share and a hat in warmer weather. Playgroup is a great way for parents to get to know others with preschoolers and give their little ones play opportunities with other children.
