Enrolment & Waiting List Procedures
Upon enrolment, you are required to fill out an enrolment application for each child that will be attending the centre.
Enrolment Forms are available at the Centre Reception. Use this form for enrolling in Child Care, Kindergarten Program and Outside School Hours Care. Remember to include how many days you would like and the age of your child / children.
Upon enquiring, if there are no vacancies available in the Centre for your child, their name will be placed on a waiting list until a position becomes available. The Centre has a policy of non-discriminatory access for all children, yet abides by the federal government’s priority of access requirements (see below). We will notify you as soon as a position becomes available. If you decide that you no longer require a position or you decide to place your child elsewhere, let us know so we can remove your waiting list application.
A non-refundable enrolment fee per family is payable on confirmation of placement.
Priority of Access
The Centre must comply with the Federal Government’s policy on ‘Priority of Access’ of families to Childcare facilities. The three levels of priority that child care services must follow when filling vacant places are:
- Priority 1: a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect
- Priority 2: a child of a single parent who satisfies, or of parents who both satisfy, the work/training/study test under section 14 of the A New Tax System (Family Assistance) Act 1999
- Priority 3: any other child
It must be noted that third priority families are restricted to 24 hours of subsidised fee relief care per week. These families may be required to relinquish their child’s position, change booked days or reduce their booked days if care is required for families in the first two priorities.
Child Immunisation Requirements
Please ensure your child’s immunisations are up to date.
