Parent Information

Our parent handbook contains all the information that is needed for your child to begin their time at the centre in childcare or preschool.
Our policies are on display within the centre and are available for parents to view at any time.

Basic policies such as suncare, nutrition, fee payment, illnesses and basic information are contained within our handbook. Our integrated centre is fortunate to have a policy committee that reviews policies for the whole centre.

On inquiry parents and caregivers will be given an enrolment pack that contains child-care and preschool enrolment forms and will be shown through the centre.
