Children attend the year before they are eligible to go to school. Children generally need to be turning 4 by the 31st July to attend in that year. (A table below outlines what year your child is eligible to attend). Children who turn 4 after 31st July attend the following year. Some children do come for 2 years if they are born in Feb-July and the family feels the children would benefit from another year at preschool. Priority will be given to children who must go to school the following year.

Our funding agreement with Department of Education requires us to firstly offer spots to those children eligible to go to school the following year. If vacancies remain after all 4 year old children have been offered a position at our kindergarten, positions will then be offered to 3 year old children but with a higher fee for children turning 4 after 31st July who are not from families with a Low Income Health Care Card, Pension Card or who are not from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background.

  • Preschool education for your child in the year prior to school
  • Long standing, highly experienced and qualified teachers and educators
  • Friendly families who will welcome you as part of the Preschool community
  • The same children attend the same days in the same class with the same teachers
  • Subsidies available for 3 and 4 year old children for families with a Health Care Card and children from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background

Families do not need to live in the catchment area to attend our preschool – Enrol now.

Please note: For 2025 and 2026 enrolments – we already have a very long waitlists for both years and therefore we are no longer taking names on the waitlists.

To add your child’s name to our waitlist, please submit via our Online Application Form.

CPCK Enrolment Policy

We encourage families to visit the preschool where we can show you what we offer, explain what we do and answer any questions you may have.  We ask that parents ring beforehand to make a time to visit.

Priority of Access

CPCK will follow the Priority of Access Guidelines at all times when enrolling children. The waiting list application will reflect these guidelines to ensure that enrolment at our Preschool is provided to families using these priorities.


The NSW Department of Education Priority of Access Guidelines will be followed in conjunction with priority for current children returning for a 2nd year then siblings of current or past families.

NSW Department of Education Priority of Access Guidelines

There is no order of priority assigned to the list. The guidelines are intended to assist services with making enrolment decisions in a way that seeks to allocate places to those in the greatest need. In no particular order, CPCK gives equal priority of access to:

  • children who are at least 4 years old on or before the 31 July in the preschool year and whom are not enrolled or registered at a school
  • children who are at least 3 years old on or before 31 December prior to starting the preschool year and who are from low income and/or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families
  • children with Language backgrounds other than English
  • children with disability and additional needs
  • children who are at risk of significant harm (from a child protection perspective)
  • children from socially isolated families

CPCK endeavours to meet the needs of the children and families in our community while complying with the above guidelines.

Collaroy Plateau Community Kindergarten acknowledges that we are located on the land of the First Nations people, possibly the Gayamaygal clan. But because the people from this area were displaced and their culture hidden, their history has been lost.

We sincerely pay our respects to past, present and future elders and ancestors of the Gayamygal and continue to share our sorrow about such painful history and we pledge to stand together with respect and the common goal of protecting the land and all of her inhabitants.
