My youngest starts kinder this year (we are in Tas), kinder is attached to the primary school, she'll be going 3 days a week, has to wear the uniform (will need black shoes & the summer dress costs $60 plus hat and socks etc) and her levies are $185 but we don't get the school kids bonus for her until she starts full time school the following year. Doesn't seem fair!
I just went to centreline AND preschoolers (prep children) ARE included. Anyone receiving ftb A is eligible to get the bonus.
We aren't eligible as we only get ftb B. But if we got ftb A then we would be able to claim it on our child who starts prep this year (5 in may)
This info straight from centreline and confirmed by 2 people in the office.
2 people have posted the chart previously on this thread that says clearly that Kindergarten children DO NOT get the payment, from YEAR 1 only. So for those who think they will be receiving for their children that are not in year 1 are not entitled to the payment and shouldn't be receiving it according to that fact sheet and was also verified by the customer service officer when I rang. So if you think you are going to get the payment something is wrong somewhere.
