Kindy isn’t free in Queensland and it also varies according to your family’s circumstance and the kindy provider you choose.

We’re working hard to introduce free early learning for every child, but until then the below guide will help you estimate how much kindy will cost. To get really clear on the costs, the best thing is to talk to your preferred kindy provider.

Here are a few examples of what you can expect to pay at some centres in Logan if the following circumstances apply to you. Please note these prices should be used as a guide only.
