Ready to start your childcare enrolment?
It's a simple process that begins with completing an online form

Enrolling for childcare with The Infants’ Home is a simple process that begins with completing an online waiting list application. This is how our childcare enrolment process works:

  • You start the enrolment process by completing a waiting list application.
  • An application incurs a $22 non-refundable administration fee. This fee is not required at the time of the online application submission.
  • We will contact you for payment once the childcare application has been received.
  • You can pay the fee over the phone via credit card (which will incur a 1.5% surcharge) or via cash/EFTPOS by visiting reception.
  • Once payment has been received you will then be placed on the childcare waiting list.
  • Once a vacancy becomes available, we will contact you with an offer for a childcare enrolment at The Infants’ Home.
  • Generally we require an acceptance or refusal of an offer within two working days.
