Wait list information

Waiting List Registration

Queanbeyan & District Preschool Association Preschool enrolments for the year ahead (January to December) are made available to 3 and 4-year-old children who are registered on our Queanbeyan & District Preschool Association Waiting List at the beginning of August in the year prior to commencement.

If you are looking to enroll your child in one of our preschools you are strongly encouraged to add your child/family details to our waiting list at any time by clicking on the Waiting List link or if you would prefer to chat with one of our staff please give our Administrative Office at Harris Park Preschool a call on (02) 6297 1640 during school hours.

Placement of Children

Placement on our Waiting List only registers your interest and is not confirmation of a preschool place - we have only a limited number of preschool places available each year and therefore we often experience a high demand for placements at Queanbeyan & District Preschool Association Preschools.

Placement of children in Queanbeyan & District Preschool Association preschools is based on waiting list information provided by parents and placement is strictly in accordance with our QDPA Enrolment & Priority of Access Policy.

Organise Visit

We strongly encourage all potential families to visit us and organise a tour of your preferred preschool. During this visit, your family will be given a tour of the environment and can chat about our philosophy, programs, and approach. Your child is encouraged to visit with you on this day so that they develop a sense of belonging and gain an understanding of the environment - they will also be able to ask any questions they may have about the Preschool.

The purpose of a visit is to provide families with an opportunity to evaluate the appropriateness of the preschool in light of the educational and developmental goals they have for their child. It also gives our preschools an opportunity to provide families with relevant information about us, the enrolment and orientation process and the classroom your child may attend.

Newly Enrolled Families

Newly enrolled families will be offered the opportunity to attend both an orientation session at your chosen preschool with your child and a Parent Information night (both are usually offered in November in the year prior to commencement at preschool).
