1.  Any kindergarten with teachers in the State Sector, whether or not it is known as a free kindergarten, can charge fees for a child to attend. 

Previously the Kindergarten Regulations (1959) Clause 14 stated "No fee shall be payable in respect of the attendance of a child at a kindergarten". 

 An Amendment Act dated 21 Dec 1990 reads: "Fees may be charged in respect of the attendance, after the commencement of the Education Amendment Act  (No. 3) 1990, of any child at any kindergarten (whether or not it is, or is known or described as, a free kindergarten) within the meaning of the Kindergarten Regulations 1959." It added: "Regulation 14 of the Kindergarten Regulations 1959 is hereby consequentially revoked".

The Education Amendment Act 2006 stated “Fees may be charged in respect of the attendance of any child at any kindergarten (whether or not it is, or is known or described as, a free kindergarten).”
