We will be starting to take enrolments for January 2023 in August, please contact us directly if your child is on our waitlist and you are wanting to confirm a position in 2023.
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.
We also implement Government recommendations to ensure priority of access is given 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 for your child at Appleseed, you will be given an enrolment pack.
You will also need to provide a copy of:
- Your child’s Birth Certificate
- An up-to-date Immunisation History Statement
We will get you to complete an online 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.
