In accordance with the Department for Educations ‘Preschool Enrolment Procedure 2017’, all SA preschools must endeavour to provide places for children living within the local geographical catchment area of the preschool as the first priority. Preschools may commence offering enrolments to families residing in the preschool’s designated geographic catchment area using their service’s priority of access guidelines, and up to their staffing allocation and enrolment cap, from the beginning of August in the year before the child is eligible to start. Preschools may accept children outside their local geographic catchment area, where there are available places in the second round of enrolment offers (September) although it is not guaranteed that your child will get into your preferred preschool if you reside outside of the local geographical catchment area. It is important to note however that all children will be assured of a place in one of the Department for Education preschool within Port Lincoln and we will aim to consider your preferences.
Information brochures for each preschool are available on request or you can view their websites
