Hours of Operation
6.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, all year round – closed only on weekends and public holidays.
We cater for children from 9 months to 12 years. Lead Educators in the groups hold an approved Diploma of Children’s Services qualification and where required are assisted by Educators who hold an approved Certificate III in Children’s Services qualification. The Centre is registered by the Queensland Government for an Approved Kindergarten Program undertaken by a Kindergarten Teacher who holds an approved Degree in Early Childhood qualification.
Once you are offered a place, we ask for a bond to secure your booking. The bond is refunded on leaving the Centre if all fees are up to date.
The Centre will provide the Federal Government’s “Childcare Benefit” subsidy for which many parents will be eligible. Parents eligible for a further subsidy, the Child Care Rebate, can also have this paid to the Centre which will further reduce their weekly fees.
The fees payable will then depend on the Childcare Benefit subsidy, Child Care Rebate, the number of days booked and the group in which a child is enrolled.
Applications for Childcare Benefit and Child Care Rebate should be made with Centrelink on 136 150. If you have not already been assessed, we would strongly recommend that you contact Centrelink as soon as possible if you are likely to require childcare in the near future.
What to Bring
Children will require a change of clothes, a set of sheets (cot size), a hat, and under 2½ years, disposable nappies, trainer pants etc as required. We provide, as an additional option, nutritionally balanced meals to suit the dietary and allergy requirements of your child. These are prepared by a qualified and experienced practising dietician and a team of chefs from “Kids Gourmet Foods”. Meals use only fresh quality ingredients and are free from artificial flavours, colours, additives and preservatives. Food is delivered to the Centre daily. If you do not wish to receive our nutritious meals service, your child will need lunch, morning and afternoon tea.
