Our Services

We offer long day care, which includes integrated kindergarten programs across Australia. In some areas we also offer outside school hours care and vacation care. Each service offers the Child Care Subsidy to eligible families and fees vary from service to service.

Defence families receive priority access and can salary package their childcare fees through their employer.

We also welcome children from the broader local community when places are available.

All our childcare services are accredited under the National Quality Standards and aspire to the ‘Exceeding’ quality rating. With our management, staff, families and community working together, we believe we can achieve this aspiration.
