The Department of Education and Training provides per capita funding as a contribution toward the costs of providing a four-year-old kindergarten program. The centre is required to charge fees to meet all additional costs incurred by the centre in the delivery of a high quality education and care program.

For families with a concession or health care card, children are able to attend a four year old kindergarten program free of charge.

The Department of Education and Training also provides funding to assist eligible three year old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, and children known to Child Protection or referred to Child FIRST, to access kindergarten programs at no cost.
