Children can be placed on the Waiting List from 6 months before the birth of the child. Parents are then offered positions at the Centre according to priority of access and date order with -
- A child at risk of serious abuse or neglect.
- A child of a parent (or both parents if you have a partner) who satisfied the Government’s work, training and activity test.
- Any other child.
When a position becomes available the Centre requires a Holding Deposit of two weeks full fees in advance. The Holding Deposit is refunded at the end of the enrolment. This Holding Deposit must be paid otherwise the position may not be held open. Prior to any child being accepted into the Centre, an Enrolment Form must be fully completed by the parents and an interview held with the Director for the parents and the child.
For administration purposes, all forms including your Enrolment Form, and copies of Birth Certificate and Immunisation Records need to be returned to the Centre at least a day before commencement. This will ensure processing and information about your child can be distributed to the relevant staff in time for your child’s arrival.
