Enrol in 4-Year-Old Preschool

Enrolment for 4-year-old preschool is processed through Nillumbik Shire Council and opens in March two years before your child turns 4 years old. Please indicate Eltham Woods Preschool as your first preference on your form.

After the Council has finished their registration process, you will be contacted by Eltham Woods Preschool to finalise the enrolment. This is where we will place your child in either the 3 short days program or the 2 long days program, based on your preference. This is also where you can request a place in our extended care program.

There are 27 places available in the long day program and 22 places available in the short day program.  We endeavour to place everyone according to their preferences however, we cannot guarantee a place in your preferred program.  A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required to secure your child’s place in the program.  This will be deducted from the term 4 invoice.

Please note, if your child has attended the 3-year-old program at Eltham Woods Preschool, you are still required to apply for the 4-year-old program through Nillumbik Council.
