Child Care Terms and FAQs
For each child, a completed enrolment form, an up to date Immunisation History Statement and any relevant action plans must be provided prior to attending child care. This information authorises staff to act in case of an emergency.
All enrolments must be completed online from March, 2019. See My Family Lounge to commence the enrolment process.
Our child care service is licensed for 28 children and we must ensure compliance across its operation. Bookings are essential and may be made through the Casey Race Child Care direct line on 5990 8605, during the hours of 9am – 1.30pm or through Customer Service on 5990 8600 outside of these hours. Bookings are taken on a weekly basis. Any bookings questions please feel free to call and speak with one of our friendly educators who will help you book in for your session.
Cancellations of a child care booking must be made by 9pm prior to the day of care required otherwise a session absent fee will apply. Cancellations may be made via:
- The My Family Lounge parent portal or App
- Calling reception or the child care service during operating hours.
A parent or guardian must sign in and out using our iPad when dropping off or collecting their children. As per regulations no child will be given into custody of another person unless authorisation in writing has been given.
The Casey RACE Child Care has children that attend with severe allergies and life threatening anaphylaxis. Due to this we have a ‘No Nut’ policy in place. This policy refers to foods such as nuts, muesli bars containing nuts and spreads such as peanut butter and Nutella.
If your child suffers from anaphylaxis, allergies or asthma, you will need to book a time with our Child Care Team Leader to complete a risk management plan. This plan must be completed before the child can begin the kinder program.
$16.00 per session.
A deposit of $50.00 must be paid to enroll in the program. All remaining payments need to be finalised by the second week of each term.
