HOW TO REGISTER
Whether you are interested in Home Childcare, Nursery School or one of our Resource Centre Programs, this page aims to help you understand how to register.
We don’t offer online registration, because when it comes to our programs, we usually need to talk with you first. And we’re happy to do that. So, on this page we have listed each of our key programs and for each program, have described the Key Steps in the registration process.
Wherever possible we also provide forms you can print off and complete once you have decided to proceed with registration. Can’t print our forms? We can provide you with any of the documents needed for registration.
For Home Childcare, please refer to our Home Childcare Parent Handbook.
