Enrolment Process

In Little Genius Cottage, our staff will support you every step of the way.

PRELIMINARY

You’re invited to take a tour of the centre so you can see where you child will be cared. You can bring along your little angels and let him/her show you how much he/she likes our centre.

It’s the best chance to discuss your needs and meet our team, we believe it’s important for families to experience our centre rather than just browsing online.

You’re encouraged to ask as many questions as you like until you’re fully comfortable with the decision.


A PLACE OFFERED

We will provide you with an enrolment pack contains everything you need to know about the centre, and information we need from you.

Please make sure you sign and return the enrolment form with all prescribed documentations before lodge the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) application.

Applying CCS is an important step to make the care more affordable.

Transition

Helping babies and parents settle into centre life is one of our priority. We will arrange 3 free orientations for each family, parents and child are encouraged to participate in different session of the date, giving child opportunities to experience and explore our centre, get to know educators and meet new friends.


FIRST DAY!

The first day in a new childcare centre is often quite emotionally challenging for both your child and you. Some babies settle easily, some may take 8 weeks or more depending on the frequency they attend the centre.

Talk calmly to your child about what will happen in the centre, such as meeting new friends, playing new toys, listening to music and dancing together etc.

Do not hurry, but when it’s time to leave, be certain. Establish a goodbye routine, reassure you child with a big hug and smile, use phrase like “I’ll come back soon” and go.

If you’re positive and confident, you child is likely to be positive as well.

Even if your child understands what will happen, the moment can still be sad. Our educators will use our knowledge to help your child through the settling in period.

Ring the centre as many times as you want to find out how your child has settled.
