Speak with the director or educators before making a decision

  • Call your preferred child care and early learning service
  • Confirm places are available for the times and days you need
  • Arrange a visit to the service

Ask a variety of questions:

  • How will I know what activities my child has done that day?
  • What is the sleeping routine like in my child’s room?
  • How will my child’s heritage be incorporated in the education programme?
  • How does the service reflect the community in which it is located?

Look at the indoor and outdoor areas of the service:

  • Is it clean and safe?
  • Is it welcoming?
  • Does it meet your child’s needs?
  • Meet the educators at the service and make sure you and your child feel comfortable interacting with them
