Kindergarten and Care enrolment
Williams house and butterfield house
If you’re considering Christian College Preschool and Care for your child, our enrolment process gives you opportunities to engage with leaders, teachers and students. The aim is to give you a genuine sense of the who, what and why of Christian College.
Our enrolment process
Explore whether Christian College Early Learning Centres suit your children and family. Start by:
Complete the Student Application Enrolment form. Return this to the reception of your selected Kindergarten + Care location. We’ll then contact you to discuss your options, answer any questions you may have and send you out an information pack.
We encourage all families who are considering Christian College to book a tour with one of our Heads of Campus.
First round offers are presented in Week 3 of Term 2, in the year preceding attendance. Second round offers are presented to eligible families by the end of Term 3.
All offers are finalised and places allocated during Term 3 of the year preceding entry.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much religion is there in the Kinder programs and how do you teach it?
Our Christian approach is seen mainly through providing a loving environment and warm relationships, teaching care for others and our world. We incorporate songs and Bible stories and encourage grace and gratitude.
How many children go onto to CCG?
This varies from year to year, but typically around 60-70 per cent of our children transition to Prep at Christian College.
At what age should my child start in either Preschool (4YO) or Prekinder (3YO)?
We advocate for starting later, allowing children the opportunity to develop socially and emotionally at an unhurried pace. Contrary to the traditional labelling of Early Years programs, most children are turning 4 in ‘3YO’ Kinder, and 5 and 6 in their ‘4YO’ Kinder year.
How difficult is it to gain a place at Williams House or Butterfield House?
Our enrolment information explains how our priority of placement policy works. In short, children who are enrolled in Prep at Christian College are automatically given a first round offer. Other priorities are also applied, which are outlined in our information handbook.
How do they learn literacy and numeracy?
Literacy and numeracy are informally embedded in play opportunities throughout our programs.
