We are still chasing the last of 2024 enrolment forms that were due back a couple of weeks ago. If you are yet to return it can we ask that completed forms are returned to us by Friday December 22nd. If you child has had immunisations this year we also need the up to date immunisation schedule from Medicare.
For families with siblings joining us next year if you have not already done so please remember to book in orientation sessions. These times can be booked from January 8th to the 19th before the commencement day of January 22nd.The orientation sessions last approximately two hours. The first session, we ask for the parent/guardian to remain for the duration of the visit. This first session is to meet educators, discuss your child’s routine and introduce your child to the new environment. The second session, which can be arranged at a time convenient to you, is to give your child the opportunity to build connections with the educators. If enrolment forms have been returned, you can leave your child for a 2-hour play, which may include a meal or rest depending on time arranged.
Families of new children are reminded to commence the assessment process with Centrelink. Once completed I will need both family and child customer reference numbers. I can submit an enrolment pattern to Centrelink approximately 30 days before your child commences care with us. Once this is submitted you will need to confirm that you agree with what has been sent. This is done via My Gov. Once confirmed the entitlements will filter through to us. Please allow enough time so that the Child Care Subsidy is in place when the first fees are charged.
