Childcare centres and kindergartens

  • Our childcare centres cater for children from 0-6 years of age. They usually operate for eight hours a day and may offer a kindergarten program. 
  • Children attend kindergarten in the year before school, usually when they are four years old. Some services offer programs for three-year-olds. Kindergartens offer a few hours or full-day sessions.

Our education and care programs are created around the developmental needs and interests of each child.

For waiting list applications, to enrol or for information about childcare centres and kindergartens, please contact the individual services.
