Woodwork is absorbingThe Centres are open between 7:30am and 5:30pm from Monday to Friday.

Children attend full time or use full day care either from 7:30am to 5:30pm or 8:30am to 4:30pm with two different costing rates. The minimum childcare attendance is three days per week, six hours per day, to enable regular settled care to happen and relationships to develop. This encourages strong, long term, stable relationships to develop with other children, teachers and parents. Children usually begin attending in the Infant and Toddler Centre and remain until they begin school at five years of age.

Each Centre has a fee structure relative to the teacher ratio and the age of the child. The Infant and Toddler Centre works with a 1:3 ratio, the Over Two Centre has a 1:7 ratio, while the Over Three Centre has a 1:9 ratio. For more detailed information in regards to fees and fee structure please contact us.
