 Admission and Enrolment

If you would like to know more about PHPS, we invite you to take a tour of our preschool.   To make an appointment to visit, please call  98752901 or email: info@phps.org.au  The best time for teachers and children is between 10am to 12pm.  

After the visit, should you wish to enrol, you may submit the Enrolment Form.  Please indicate on the enrolment application your preferred day of attendance and if you are flexible on the days, plus your earliest and latest plan start date. If we are unable to offer you a place for your required start date, you can be placed on the waitlist.  Enrolments are open all year round with most vacancies occurring at the beginning of the year as children move on to primary school.  So if possible, plan to enroll for the beginning of the year. There is no charge to be on the waiting list and to confirm enrolments, a payment of $150 fee is payable.  To ensure the days you require are available, we recommend enquiring at least 6 to 12 months in advance.


Prior to starting, we offer a free orientation day for families to be familiarised with the services and to meet the teachers.   Orientation is normally conducted between 10am and 12:30pm (just after lunch) and parents are welcome to stay.  To assist younger toddlers and first time preschoolers with any separation anxieties, we recommend families to make use of the short play group sessions in the weeks prior to commencing full day or consider slowly building up the hours as the relationship between your child-teacher and other children develops.  Although most children are quite resilient and will eventually over come any temporary separation anxieties, planning ahead will help provide a smoother and happier transition to day care.
