What do I need for Enrollment?

Prior to commencing at our Centre, you will be required to complete enrolment documentation.

Please understand that it is essential we have up-to-date information in case of an emergency. It is important that you notify the Director/ Deputy Director of any changes to enrolment information including:

  • Address 
  • Health 
  • Telephone/mobile numbers 
  • Contact details 
  • Family changes 
  • Emergency contact information details etc. 

It is essential that we have copies of your child’s updated immunisation status.

What is your Orientation Procedue?

The orientation process is compulsory before starting care. The Centre offers an extensive orientation process to all families, whereby your child is introduced into day care slowly through regular visits with you prior to their commencement day at the Centre. We believe orientation is an important process for children, families and educators to gain vital information about the individual child’s needs and interests. To enable children to feel safe and secure, and to set the foundations for a trusting partnership, we feel that it is necessary for the family to attend orientation visits. These visits assist the child to adjust to a new setting and helps to make the transition from home to the Centre composed. We organise for you and your child to orientate initially for ½- 1 hour to enable you to meet and talk to staff regarding your child’s needs. These times gradually increase depending on how your child settles. We require families to orientate their child for at least one week before the start date. During the course of the orientation process parents are required to stay in the building. Families are provided with opportunities to share information about their child and their families which they feel will assist their child’s participation in orientation to the Centre. Staff will guide you through this process. We strive to ensure that this is a positive experience for your child. Please see the Director to arrange suitable times for orientation. Fees are not charged for the orientation period.
