Booleroo Centre and District Kindergarten and Rural Care

Welcome to Booleroo Centre and District Kindergarten and Rural Care

Booleroo Centre and District Kindergarten and Rural Care offers a kindergarten program for children in the year before they start school and long day care for children aged 0-5, with after school and vacation care for school-aged children up to 12 years.  Our centre maintains close ties with Booleroo Centre District school and the two organizations operate together as a Birth-12 site.  We service Booleroo Centre and neighbouring towns including Melrose, Murray Town and Wirrabara as well as rural properties in the surrounding areas.

Eligibility for the kindy program is determined by birth date. There is only one intake for kindy children at the beginning of each year.  Children may start kindy if they have turned or will turn 4 before the 1st May.  Kindy children may travel on school buses, subject to seat availability.  Kindy fees are $85 per term in 2017.

Our site has been classified as a site with low risk during Catastrophic Fire Alert Days. This means that when a Catastrophic Fire Alert is called for the Flinders Fire Ban District, our site will remain open on that day. However, school buses will not run on Catastrophic Fire Alert Days.
