We offer child care and occasional care from Monday – Friday for children aged 6 weeks old and up.

Child care

This allows you to leave your child in care whilst you take the opportunity to attend matters outside the centre or when you are enjoying the centres facilities.

It is available all hours during creche session times with a minimum 1 hour per day and a maximum of three hours per day. The 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. An enrolment form must be completed on your first visit as you child's safety is our number one priority.

As of 1st 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. 

Please note that homeopathic immunisations are not accepted.

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

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. Our educators will do everything we can to assist new children, and ensure their transition into childcare is as smooth as possible.
