Request for care

  • Family Day Care Request for Care Form from our A-Z forms page

Families are referred to Educator/s who have the requested vacancy. The parent is asked to contact the Educator/s  to arrange a time to visit and meet with the Educator at the education and care service.  It is recommended that the children who will be using care also attend the interview.

Enrolment process

After you have interviewed the Educator/s, you are required to contact the Children's Services Administration office and advise us of your choice of Educator and an enrolment form will be emailed to you. The enrolment form must be completed and returned to the Children's Services Office before care commences.
