You can enrol at any time to be a member of the centre by completing the enrolment form and paying an annual registration fee and one-off bond.  Your bond is refunded when you leave the centre.

Once enrolled, bookings can be made for permanent placements or on a casual basis.  Casual bookings are accepted on or before the day required (must be confirmed by co-ordinator).

Permanent booking – your child uses the centre for the same session (morning and/or afternoon) each week. 

Casual booking – you can use the centre on a ‘as-needs’ basis, depending on what vacancies we have available.

Members have to re-enrol every year.

We provide childcare places in accordance with the Australian Government’s Priority of Access Guidelines. Please refer to the centre’s Service Access Policy for further information.


Step 1: Find out more about our centre.  You can read our website, our information pack, our policies, or simply pop into the centre and have a look around.  We are very happy to show new parents around our facility. 

Step 2: If you haven’t already, then register your family for Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate (CCR), by contacting the Family Assistance Office (FAO) on 13 61 50.

You’ll need to advise us of the Customer Reference Numbers (CRNs) that they give you for you and your children, as outlined in our enrolment form. 

Step 3: Complete our enrolment form

Step 4: In centre, submit your completed enrolment form with:

  • Annual enrolment fee ($55 per family)
  • Bond payment ($50)
  • Small photo of each child
  • Copy of each child’s immunisation record
  • Medicare number and doctor’s details
  • Emergency contact details
  • CRN numbers for your children

Step 5: Your enrolment will be processed by our Centre Director. They will then notify you by email or phone if there is a place available for your child/ren and when they can start.
