Fees and funding
Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten is a Queensland government approved kindergarten program provider. This means the centre receives government funding through the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme (QKFS). This funding is administered through the kindy’s central governing body, The Lady Gowrie. The funding received from the government is already factored in when the management committee determines annual fees.
As a community-based centre, Mt Gravatt Kindergarten’s management committee is conscious of making kindy fees affordable for all families, while also being able to provide excellent facilities and resources for all children at this centre.
Payment for term fees may be made via internet banking. Please note the kindy does not have credit card facilities, nor can it accept cash payments.
