A child is considered to be enrolled if:

  • they attended a preschool program for at least one hour during the reference period OR
  • was absent during the reference period due to illness or extended holiday leave but expected to return.

Non-instructional times such as recess, tea breaks and lunch breaks should be included if the child was under the supervision of the service provider organisation

The hours enrolled may be less than or equal to the maximum number of hours available for children to attend the preschool program, but may exceed the number of hours the child attended at the service in the reference period.
