Enrolling your child at Milford Baptist Kindergarten is a simple process which can start right here with an online enrolment application. This allows you to do so at anytime, day or night, when it’s most convenient.
Enrol Your Child
We operate a waiting list system to sensibly manage the number of children attending and to maintain an above average staff to child ratio.
We recommend enrolling your child as soon as possible, to be considered for attendance according to a range of criteria where their position on the waitlist, the child’s age, the balance of age groups currently enrolled, administrative requirements met, and whether any siblings are currently attending will be factored.
Depending on the waiting list, it is our intention that children are considered for attendance from age 2.5 years.
Please note, all enrolments will need to be finalised in person as we find it hugely important and beneficial to meet all families and children prior to a confirmation of placement.
Once enrolled, every family will receive a Christian Bible on their first day of attendance when they are welcomed at mat time and every child enrolled will be subsidised by the Ministry of Education.
Fees Per Session
Under 3 years old $25.00 for a morning
Over 3 years old $14.00 for a session
Fees Per Day
Over 3 years old $25 for a full day
