Getting Started

Step 1: Waitlist

Applications for enrolment are accepted at any time throughout the year subject to vacancies. 

If you wish to enroll your child at our Centre, you will need to complete the waiting list form. If no vacancies exist, your child will be placed on our waiting list until the day/s you require are available.

Step 2: Position offered

Once your child has been offered a position in the Centre an enrolment package will be forwarded to you to complete before your child’s first day and offered a time to come in for a tour.

Step 3: Acceptance

Enrolment is accepted once all forms are fully completed and returned within the specified time frame and a bond payment of $310 per family is paid to the service. 

The bond payment includes a non-refundable administration fee of $110. The remaining $200 bond will be refunded when your child ceases care at WWEYLC, provided fees are up to date. A non-refundable administration fee of $110 per child applies to additional siblings upon enrolment.

Step 4: Enrolment confirmation

Once your enrolment has been confirmed, your child’s details will be passed onto your child’s Room Leader to ensure they are expecting your child on their first day. Parents are encouraged to communicate their child’s routine, likes/dislikes and individual needs with Educators.

If your child has any special needs, medical conditions or acute allergies, your child’s enrolment will be passed to your child’s Educators who will accommodate your child’s specific needs within the Centre.

Step 5: Your little ones first day!

Your child's room leader will be expecting you. They will help your child (and you) become familiar with the steps involved in getting themselves ready for their day.

What is Child Care Subsidy?

Child Care Subsidy is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of your childcare.

Who can get Child Care Subsidy?

You can get Child Care Subsidy if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending childcare services approved by, or registered with the Government. 

You can get Child Care Subsidy if:

  • you have a child in your care who meets the immunisation requirements [1] (or have an exemption)
  • you or your partner (if you have one) meet residency requirement [2] (or have an exemption)
  • your child attends approved [3] or registered care [4] and you have the ability to pay for the cost of your child care
  • you meet the income test

How much child Care Subsidy can I get?

The amount you get depends on your circumstances:

  • the type of care you use (approved or registered)
  • your income
  • the amount of care you use
  • the reason you are using care and
  • the number of children you have care
  • Visit Centrelink for more information & subsidy calculators

How do places get filled?

When filling vacant places, we fill our places according to the following priorities:
Priority 1: a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect.
Priority 2: a child of a single parent who satisfies, or of parents who both satisfy the work, training, study test.
Priority 3: any other child.
Within these main Priority categories, priority should also be given to children in:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families
  • Families which include a disabled person
  • Families on lower incomes
  • Families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Socially isolated families
  • Single parent families

WWEYLC also has internal priority of access principles that reflect priority for five days per week care, children of people working at WWEYLC; siblings of children already in care and children in part-week care who are moving to full-time care.

What if my child is absent? Do I still pay? Do I need to notify you?

Absent days are still charged at the same rate as regular care days and you will still receive your Child Care Subsidy entitlement for up to 42 absences per financial year. This includes public holidays throughout the year.
