A FEW CHILD CARE CHANGES AS PER AHS:
Effective immediately all bookings must be done in 2 week increments.
What does this mean?
- Parents need to book for two weeks at a time. Yes, you can cancel during that two week booking, but you cannot add a booking once the block is closed.
- AHS requires that all children are grouped together for a minimum of 2 week periods, and that start times are the same for all children.
- Children do not need to wear masks while in child care, but do need to wear masks to and from.
- Our staff will be wearing masks as they are working with multiple groups of children, as per AHS.
- Our maximum number of children is now 6.
- Our old child care portal is now closed, please book HERE.
Example of two week blocks:
- Our next block is the week of September 14 to September 21. The bookings for this week will close on Sunday, September 13 at 6 pm.
- The next block will be the week of September 28 to October 5, again closing Sunday, October 4 at 6 pm.
- Blocks will open after one block closes. ie. On September 14 the September 28 block will open.
We know this is a lot of changes for parents and children. We appreciate your patience while we work through all the guidelines and ensure we are offering the best possible service to you and your children. We look forward to seeing you soon in our Child Care.
Children under the age of 1 year require a 30-minute paid trial visit before they are permitted access to the Child Care Centre.
- There is a fee for the infant trial visit. Please purchase 30 minutes of infant care from the Customer Service Desk before the trial begins.
- Trials for children over the age of 1 year are at the discretion of the Child Care Attendant.
Please email email@example.com to book your infant trial, as this will be booked outside of our normal Child Care open hours.
