Waiting List and Enrolment Procedures
Enquiries can be made via our website or by calling us to make an appointment to visit and tour the centre with the Director. At this point relevant policies and practices of the centre are explained so that families can ensure our service meets their needs.
The centre maintains a waiting list for childcare and Kindergarten based upon the priority of access guidelines and the amount of care required by the family. When positions are limited, a parent requiring care may need to complete a form and take a place on the waiting list. When a position becomes available the parent will be contacted and offered the position.
When a childcare position has been offered the procedure for acceptance is:
- An enrolment form must be collected, completed and returned to the centre, preferably within 3 days of the date of offer.
- A $100.00 bond is paid to secure your child’s position. If your child commences care with us and circumstances change requiring you to cease care, after a minimum period of one month, this money will be refunded in full. If your child fails to commence care, or remain at the service for a one month period, this money will be forfeited.
- A suitable orientation period and start date should be decided.
