Today’s families choose varied and different diets for their children. We cater for the different needs and requests from families.

What is the best way to communicate with my child’s teachers?
You can discuss your child with our teachers when you drop off and pick up your child or by calling them throughout the day. If you have general queries about your child’s experience at Lullaby you can contact us via email or phone.
How can I enrol my child at Lullaby?

At what age do you accept babies for care at Lullaby?

When can my child attend Forest Learning?
Children can attend Forest Learning when they are eligible for our Pre-Prep Room the Bears Room.
What is the CCS (Child Care Subsidy)?
The Child Care Subsidy, or CCS is an Australian government initiative to assist you with the cost of child care.
You can find out more about the CCS and your eligibility here. The CCS is managed by Centrelink and it may be worth going into your local Centrelink office for advice or assistance.
It is always worth enquiring into your eligibility for the CCS. The amount you are eligible for depends on your family’s income, the type of childcare you enrol in and recognised activities. There are many activities that are recognised that may contribute to your eligibility. These include such activities as volunteering, study, unpaid work, self-employment and even looking for work activities.
Once your child has been successfully enrolled for the CCS the amount for which you are eligible will be automatically deducted from your fees. Therefore, the amount you will be invoiced for in your statements from Lullaby will be the remaining difference in your fees.
What is the enrolment fee?
We do not charge an enrolment fee.
What is the Bond Fee?
The Bond amount is $200 per family. The Bond amount does not have the CCS applied. Subsequent children per family do not incur another bond amount.
The Bond is refunded to your selected account at the finish of your child’s enrolment provided two weeks notice is given and your account is up to date.
Can I book my child in casually?
If your child is not currently enrolled, Lullaby does not offer casual bookings.
If your child is enrolled on a regular basis and there is availability we will do our best to accommodate your needs for casual days.
Should I send spare clothes?
Please send a change of clothes, we never know what a day will offer. We also request that all clothing is named.
In summer children should be dressed for Sun Smart Guidelines. Tops should cover shoulders and be of light, breathable material. Children should come with a hat
Clothes for winter should include covered in shoes and socks. The children will spend time outside every day, regardless of the weather, so clothing should be warm.
