Child Care Centres (Long Day Care)

Child care in the City of Maribyrnong

Child Care Centres provide care and education for children aged six weeks to six years. Child care provides a caring and educational program promoting the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of the child.

Qualified staff have a range of training and experience and offer programs which are sensitive to the needs of families.

Fees are determined by individual centres and families may be eligible for fee subsidies. For more information click here.

Community Based Child Care Centres

Parents play an important role in the day to day administration of community based child care centres as members of the volunteer Committee of Management, and by participating in centre activities. For more information please discuss with the centre manager.

Integrated Services

Integrated services are those where a funded kindergarten program operates within a child care setting.

Children must be registered for child care to access an integrated kindergarten program.

Children enrolled and attending child care with an integrated kindergarten program are also required to register for kindergarten. These children are given priority and are placed in the integrated kindergarten program at the same service provided the service has been nominated as a first preference and the child continues in Long Day Care in the same year as kindergarten attendance. This is to promote continuity of work related care needs and funded kindergarten attendance for the child.

Where a child is enrolled and attending Long Day Care and the family request their child attend sessional kindergarten only CRS must be notified prior to 30 June the year before attendance. These children will go through the normal process of allocation.

To be considered for sessional only kindergarten families must register their preferences with CRS.
