Relief Package

Last week, the Federal Government announced its Early Childhood Education relief package. Families must be enrolled to receive the benefits of this package. To help families, all enrolments cancelled or changed in these last few weeks have been reinstated. This will ensure families hold their place and receive fee relief. Should families wish to alter their enrolment in the future we have a dedicated team in place to discuss their individual circumstances and provide support if required.

Families will not have to pay the gap fee whether or not they choose to send their child(ren) to a care centre. Please contact Anthony Goonan via This email address is being protected from spambots.
