Our 3-step enrolment process:

1.Book a tour

Begin by booking a tour- come and meet our Centre Manager and educators, and learn more about our facilities and programs.

2. Enrolment

After touring your new centre, you will be asked to complete an online enrolment form.

3. Orientation

Once you have completed your enrolment form and a place is available, orientation will then be arranged. This exciting free visit gives you and your child the opportunity to familiarise yourselves with the centre, educators and new friends!
Orientation is a set of three visits that typically run for one hour each. Unless previously arranged, you must stay at the centre while your child is undertaking orientation.

If there are currently no places for your child, we will ask you to register your details with us so we can contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

The Australian Government currently offers two main subsidies that you may be eligible for: Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit.

  • The Child Care Rebate (CCR) covers 50% of out-of-pocket childcare expenses for approved childcare in addition to any other childcare assistance.
  • The Child Care Benefit helps with costs for approved and registered care such as long day care, outside school hours care, school holiday programs and kindergarten.

From 2 July 2018, Australian Government childcare subsidies will change. In early 2018, the government will send more details to families currently using childcare.

To find out more about the range of subsidies available, contact Centrelink direct on 13 61 50 or visit Department of Human Services.

Please also be aware of the “No Jab No Play” legislation, which may affect your childcare benefits.
