Waitlist and Enrolment Process

 

Little Adventures Early Learning aims to ensure that each child and their family receives an enrolment and orientation process that meets their needs, allowing the family and child to feel safe and secure in the education and care that we provide.

Families can make initial enrolment enquiries via email, telephone or in person. At this time, families are provided with basic information about the Service, its programs, routines and fees; and, if present are shown through the Service or encouraged to make an appointment at a later time.

When a family decides that they would like to enrol their child at our service, and there is no immediate place available, they must complete a hard copy Waitlist Application Form or access the services website, register a ‘My Family Lounge’ account and complete an online Waitlist Request. Both forms are stored in the services Waitlist Folder.

When a position becomes available at the service, the Nominated Supervisor or Responsible Person will refer to the Waitlist Folder, identify who is next on the list and inform the family of the availability, either by phone or email.

First preference is given to children on the waitlist who are currently enrolled and to those children who are the sibling of a child who is currently enrolled.
