There are currently no vacancies at Appleseed Childcare. If you would like to join our Waiting List, please complete our Waiting List form or call us on 9869 0555. We do not charge a Waiting List Fee.
When considering places for children, our policy is straightforward. Priority is given to children who have a sibling already at Appleseed, and to children who live in the local community.
In addition, the Government has set out guidelines that grant priority access to children at risk of abuse or neglect, children of single parents, and children of couples who both satisfy the Work, Training, Study test. Enrolments are for a minimum of two days per week. This is recommended for the emotional wellbeing of your child. Two or more days in care provides continuity and allows children to feel a sense of confidence within their carers and their environment.

Once you have secured a place at Appleseed, you will need to drop in so we can set you up. You will need to bring:
- Your child’s Birth Certificate
- An up-to-date Immunisation History Statement
We will get you to complete an enrolment form and a direct debit form.
Upon enrolment, your child will receive a preschool bag, hat, and drink bottle.
At enrolment, we’ll also organise an orientation day for you and your child. This is a very important process to get your child used to the idea of attending the centre.
During orientation, children are encouraged to spend as much time as they like exploring the centre, playing with other children and participating in activities, all while in the comforting presence of their parent or parents.
It’s a great idea to talk about the experience with your child at home afterwards.
