Waiting List Application

If you would like your child to be considered for a place at one of our council centres, please complete and return this application. 

You will receive a confirmation email once we have received your application. 

It is unlikely a place will be available immediately. We are unable to predict the length of time that your child may remain on our waiting list before an offer will become available. As a GUIDE ONLY, offers for placement generally become available towards the end of a calendar year, for commencement around or after February of the following year. 

Council’s Kindergarten and Early Childhood Education priority of access policy means our centres offer places to families’ already receiving care in our centres first. They may be requiring extra days, a change of days or have another child waiting to start. 

If we still have places available and your child is the next child eligible for that place, we will be in contact with you. Once offered a place it is expected that your child would start orientation and commence care within 2 WEEKS of the date of offer.
