Childcare

This allows you to leave your child in care whilst you take the opportunity to enjoy the Centre's facilities.

Activities include art/craft, story reading, music and movement, songs, outdoor play and educational toys. Our program aims to meet the needs of individual children and the group as a whole.

Please complete an attached enrolment form prior to your first visit to the Centre.

As of 1 January 2016, new government legislation has come into place. All children need to have proof of up to date immunisation. Before attending childcare this year you will need to complete a new enrolment form for 2016, a copy of the child’s birth certificate(can be transferred from last year’s enrolment form),  and ensure we have up to date for age proof of immunisation. An immunisation history statement is available from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register. These can be requested at any time by contacting Medicare or visiting the Medicare website - www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/online or email - acir@medicareaustralia.gov.au

Please note that homeopathic immunisations are not accepted.

Overseas immunisations need to be verified by a local GP or immunisation nurse.

Our educators will do everything we can to make this transition as smooth as possible. It is very important to notify us of any changes throughout the year to ensure the correct information is on your child’s enrolment form.

Please see the below link to help you better understand the new legislation.
