Our centre operates a waiting list system, in order of receipt of applications. The earlier you return your application form, the more likely you are to secure a place. You are welcome to enrol your child any time after they are born.
Places are offered early in term three for the following year. This process can take a few weeks to complete. Please ensure that we have your up-to-date contact details.
Children with specific needs are welcome
Should we have children attending our centre who require additional assistance or specific facilities to support them in their daily routines, we can apply for funding and employ suitably qualified staff to meet their needs.
