Reduced places during school holidays.
We care for children up to 3 hours per day and a maximum of 15 hours per week. Bookings are essential.
Types of care
- Occasional care - for children whose parents are leaving the centre.
- Childcare - for children whose parents are present in the centre.
Parents are encouraged to visit with their child before commencing care. Orientation visits are not charged or limited and parents need to attend at least 3 to 4 times before leaving their child. These visits are a great opportunity to observe the program and allow you and your child time to familiarise yourselves with the staff and the centre's routine.
Ages and times
We cater for children from 2 months to pre-school age. There are limited places available per day for pre-school age children as per our license specification.
Our qualified and professional staff will nurture and entertain your children while you relax and enjoy the local facilities. The centre maintains high levels of supervision of children at all times. The staff to child ratios for our centre is as per Children's Services Regulations.
For the safety and wellbeing of all children, please be aware we are a nut-free centre. We ask that all nuts and nut based products (including Nutella, Peanut Butter, and muesli bars) are not brought into our centre.
Bookings are essential and can be made in person at the childcare centre or by phone during the hours of Leisure Centre operations on 9358 6600. Unfortunately we cannot cater for casual drop-ins.
