The Centre coordinator maintains a waiting list for families wanting to place their children at the Centre. Parents are asked to contact the Centre coordinator periodically to ensure their placement requirements are kept current. In November of every year a letter and form is sent to all families on the waiting list to update information. Where forms are not returned the child is removed from the list. The waiting list closes from time to time when numbers of families wanting places greatly exceeds supply.
A non-refundable fee of $25 applies to all new applications for the waiting list and applications are not processed unless payment is made. Acceptance for the waiting list does not guarantee placement at the Centre, as the demand for places is usually greater than the number of places available at any one time. Places are allocated in October each year for the following calendar year, and on an ad hoc basis throughout the year as places become vacant. A minimum enrolment of two days per weeks is strongly encouraged for all children, except those circumstances where the Centre only has single day vacancies. Where a child is enrolled for a single day in this circumstance, they will be encouraged to take on an additional day when one becomes available. Those enrolling for single days will be allocated places based on availability not preference. A minimum of three days is required for all Kindergarten enrolments. (3 days is required for funding purposes)
