Here are the answers to our most commonly asked questions.

Q: What do I need to do if my child is sick or is not attending?

A: You need to call or email the Centre and advise us of the person’s name and contact number. This person must be an authorised person as outlined on the enrolment form.

A: If you expect to be late picking up your child in the afternoon please phone the Centre to inform us of the situation as soon as possible. If you pick up your child after 6pm you will be charged an additional $1 for every minute past the hour. If the parent or guardian is unable to be contacted and the children have not been collected Chatswood Police Station will be contacted.

 

Q: How do I book my child into the Centre?

A: If it is the first time your child will be attending the Centre you will need to fill out an Enrolment form for your child.
