Ballina Byron Family Day Care
Thank you for taking time to explore the possibility of placing your child with us at Ballina Byron Family Day Care.
It’s natural to have lots of questions when you are looking for care for your child. It’s also important that you and your family trust and feel comfortable with your chosen childcare service.
When you register with Ballina Byron Family Day Care, our coordinators will guide you through our registration process, providing you with that peace of mind that comes with selecting an educator and environment that suits your needs.
Your educator and coordinator will become a very important person in your child’s life. We’ll develop a strong partnership with you, built on mutual respect to ensure your child gets the best possible care.
How To Enrol?
Once we’ve received your application, you will be placed on our waiting list. Our coordinators will be in touch to discuss your needs and the availability of care.
When a vacancy becomes available in the area you have nominated, we’ll be in touch to arrange an interview with you either at our office, or at your home.
Prior to the interview, you’ll need to complete our Enrolment Form (link to form) and provide copies of the following documents:
- Medicare AIR Immunisation History Statement or
- Medicare AIR Immunisation History Form or
- Medicare AIR Immunisation Medical Exemption Form
You’ll also need to contact the Department of Human Services to be assessed for Child Care Subsidy on 136 150.
At your interview, we’ll provide you with a Parent Kit containing valuable information about our service and a broad brimmed hat for your child. You’ll be given referrals to one or two educators who meet your needs. You can then arrange visits to each educator and view their service.
There is a non-refundable enrolment fee of $60
