If you are interested in enrolling your child into our early education centre, all you need to do is complete an enrolment form. Please contact our centre for a tour and for an enrolment pack.
We have parent welcome packs available for collection at our centre, which includes the enrolment form and other relevant forms. Anyone who comes for a tour of our centre will receive a free gift as part of the welcome pack.
Eligible families will receive Child Care Benefit that may assist with the cost of child care. Prior to your attendance at our centre families need to lodge an application, (either written, telephone or on-line) for CCB with the Family Assistance Office who calculate the percentage of CCB you will receive and allocate eligible hours.
Each family and child is allocated a unique reference number. The date of birth of the claiming parent and children will also be required. Families are notified of their CCB percentage by letter, and Children’s Choice requests you bring this letter to us, so we may verify your CRN numbers, and check that your correct CCB reduction is being given. (Centrelink is now on line with us and responsible for your CCB reduction).
If you are intending to pay full fees for your childcare and claim a fee reduction later as a lump sum, you still need to apply for a Customer Reference Number. This reference number is needed to formally record your child’s attendance at the centre, and is also necessary to claim cash rebates.
All parents eligible for 50 hours per week Child Care Benefit ( including those whose income disallows the receipt of Child Care Benefit), receive a 50% rebate from the Federal Government, every 3 months, for fees paid outside of Child Care Benefit.
Only authorised people may pick up children from our childcare centre. You must have previously authorised them in writing to do so, or you must telephone on the day and give sufficient details that can be verified. Please make staff aware of any new custody/access details that may occur. Attendance sheets must be signed when you drop off and pick up your child.

“Coop always has a great day and all the ladies there are just wonderful. One of the best kindies.”
“5 star! My kids love this daycare.”
“My daughter has been at Children’s Choice for almost 2 years. In that two years the ladies at this centre have been nothing but amazing, when my daughter is striving to learn something they are always accommodating towards it. I love that they document milestones that children can take home with them for us parents to read. I’ve moved quite far from the centre, and I’m willing to travel just to have her there. It’s such a loving family environment, my daughter wakes me up when it’s her day to go. She loves it. I love it. So thankyou Children’s Choice.”
“My son has been in the toddler room since he was 15 months. He adores his teachers and loves his class. We rarely have any tears at drop-off time. Tobias feels safe, secure and super happy in care. I feel relieved to know he is so well cared for while I work.”
“The lovely outdoor environment is inviting &The staff are friendly and supportive of our needs. We have been very happy with the care and attention of our daughter as she attended Children’s Choice.”
“Loved the centre. My son Mason found it difficult to separate from me at first and frankly, I too had a hard time leaving him. The staff were very welcoming to Mason and I, and we settled in quickly.”
