The Centre has a waiting list that prospective parents fill out prior to needing care.  To become part of the waiting list we encourage families to make an appointment with the Centre to have a brief look and become familiar with the philosophy and practices as well as become aware of the location of the Centre.  Once a vacancy arises for their child the Centre will contact the parents and an interview will be arranged.

  • The service requires an enrolment fee of $50 from all enrolling families to secure their enrolment and should be paid when providing enrolment documents. This fee will be deducted on the families’ first tax invoice.
  • Enrolments will not be processed until this fee is received. This is a non-refundable fee that will be forfeited should the family choose not to continue with the enrolment.

The Centre will follow the Priority of Access Policy;
