Getting Started in Childcare
We encourage parents or careers to come into our centre for a tour and meet the centre Director and Educators at a time and day suitable for you and the centre. You will be shown through the centre and the rooms that the children transition to each year.
How to enrol
The Centre Director will provide you with an enrolment pack which will include the Centre Handbook, Enrolment Forms, Fee Schedule and any other relevant information required.
The procedure is not complicated or time-consuming but it is informative.
Our Centre Director and Educators want parents and carers to feel comfortable and happy in their choice of selecting Lenah Valley Childcare and Early Learning Centre for the care of their child in a safe welcoming manner.
How to prepare
It is an exciting day for our Educators – a new beginning for your child in Belonging, Being and Becoming from growing and learning at our centre.
It might be a day of anxiety for you, that is natural for all our parents and you can contact our Educators anytime during the day to see if your child has settled.
