Upon enrolment, please nominate authorised persons to collect your child.

All booked days must be paid for, including days of absence due to sickness or scheduled holidays. Public holidays that fall within the school terms must also be paid for. Before and after school care fees do not apply for pupil free days.
Please give the Centre Coordinator two weeks notice in writing if you wish to discontinue your child’s attendance. If no notice is given for cancellation of care, the bond will be withheld.
The staff will use clear guidelines and positive strategies for managing children’s behaviour in order to encourage positive interaction and cooperation. In scenarios of unacceptable behaviour:
We use a short ‘thinking period’.
Withdrawal from an enjoyable activity for a short time.
If the behaviour continues, parents will be informed.
I have felt like we had family looking after my child from the first day. (I) love Ann and her staffs commitment and dedication to the centre and the children.
I feel very comfortable knowing that my child is well looked after by friendly and caring staff. A child that complains I’ve come to pick her up too early is a testament to how great the centre is.
