Enrolling Your Child in Daycare

Enrolling your child in a Sydney child care centre for the first time can be a daunting experience for any parent. With a variety of choice in the local Greystanes and Brighton Le Sands area, it is important to consider a day care centre where your child feels comfortable and at ease.

To start the process, begin by asking yourself the question what are the child care centres near me? Once you considered all the early childhood centres in best proximity, consider the learning environment where your child can feel comfortable.

There are many types of early learning centres that cater to different age groups and provide unique services. Find one that best fits your family’s situation. Once you’ve decided on which child care centre for your child, it’s time to inquire about the enrolment process and the requirements that you need to provide.

Child Care Enrolment Process

We would love to have your kids become one of our berries at the Berry Patch Preschool and Long Day Care Centre. The enrolment process for The Berry Patch is easy. You may visit our Waiting List Application page and answer a couple of questions about your child as well as your contact details. You also need to provide your enrollment preferences, including your choice of centre location—Kellyville Ridge Preschool, Rouse Hill Child Care Centre, Greystanes Preschool, and Brighton Le Sands Child Care Centre. We will also take note of your preferred days of the week, dietary requirements, and other additional needs.

Rest assured that we regularly review our application page. We will get in touch with you if a place becomes available. Once you have been accepted, there are some requirements that you need to provide to enrol your child.

School Enrolment Requirements: What do I need to enrol my child in preschool

When enrolling your child, here is the information that you need to provide in detail:

  • Your child’s basic information and special needs. These may include your child’s dietary preferences, sleeping and toilet habits, as well as emotional and social preferences. If your child has food allergies, it is best to provide it immediately beforehand. Finally, it would be a great help to us if you describe school activities that your child enjoys.
  • Your contact information. Here at The Berry Patch, we prioritise the safety of your child. That’s why we need you to provide detailed information on how to contact you in case an important concern arises. We also need information on other carers or guardians who take care of your child in your stead, especially during pickups.
  • Your child’s immunisation status. To finalise your enrolment, you must provide us with your child’s immunisation status certificate from the Australian Immunisation Register. This certificate will show that your child is up to date on their vaccinations or has a medical reason if not. This policy will reduce the transmission of diseases and reinforce the importance of immunisation as a means to prevent diseases. If you have problems regarding the certificate, let us know and we will be glad to assist you.
