Child Care

Our child care provides a balanced range of educational, music, dance, dress-up, social and recreational experiences for children, aged from birth to 5 years old.

The child care room operates in accordance with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development Regulations with a maximum of 20 children at any one time.

To arrange a tour of the child care centre, call us on 9490 7119 between the hours of 8.30am to noon, Monday to Friday.

Opening hours

The crèche opens at 9am and closes at noon. Session times are:

  • Session 1 – 9am-10.30am
  • Session 2 – 10.30am-noon

Occasional care is available from 9am-noon, with a maximum of five places available each day.

You must ensure that you are in and out of the crèche only during your specific session time. Special consideration may be given to across session bookings if you have a gym assessment or your child’s sibling is attending a swimming lesson.

The crèche is closed on public holidays and operates for limited hours during school holidays.

What to bring

  • Change of clothing and nappy and wipes if required
  • A light and healthy snack in a container clearly labelled with your child’s name
  • A drink bottle clearly labelled with your child’s name

You can bring your child’s pram as we have an external path which provides pram access and avoids the entrance steps. We discourage children from bringing toys from home as they can get misplaced or broken.

Health

The crèche is subject to strict guidelines set by the Health Department, which means that children who are unwell cannot attend Crèche.

Please note that we are ‘nut and nut product free’ due to the risk of allergies.
