We believe that children should be supported to slowly transition into their new environment and have time to build relationships with their new educators which is why we run a thorough orientation process for all children before they begin full days of care. Once your offer is finalised, our friendly Administrator will be in contact with you in order to organise orientation. We are not able to begin orientation until we have received all documentation for the enrolment process. For more information, click here.

Our orientation process is made up of:

  • An initial 1-hour session where you visit the room with your child. This allows them time to explore their environment while one of our team members runs through some questions with you about your child’s interests, routine and family dynamic.

  • Following this, two ‘half-day’ orientations are booked, allowing your child to attend a short session where they will partake in routine times such as meal times and possibly one sleep. This process will assist your child to transition into care.

what do we provide?

The centre will be supplying the following;

  • Nappies & Wipes

  • Sunscreen

  • Children’s bedding

  • Breakfast program (from centre open to 8 am)

  • Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon tea & a late snack

What to bring?

In order to support children to build responsibility and ownership, we encourage each child to bring their own clearly labelled bag.  This bag will be placed in the child’s locker throughout the day and can be accessed easily. We suggest labelling all items brought into the service and recommend only bringing clothing and personal belongings that are suitable for children to fully immerse themselves in sensory learning, such as secondhand items. Precious or important items of clothing may become stained or lost while at play and we want to minimise any possibility of those occurrences.

The following items will need to be brought in the bag each day and taken home at night:

  • Drink and/or milk Bottle

  • Formula dispenser/ container

  • Security/comfort items

  • A reusable water bottle filled with water only. 

  • A complete change of clothes (if toilet training - 3 sets of clothes, inc shoes)

  • As part of the Sun Smart policy children are required to wear hats when playing outside, which protect the face, neck and ears, i.e. legionnaire or full brim, from the start of September to the end of April. (Please note: Baseball caps do not offer enough protection and are therefore not recommended.)

  • A warm jumper, woolly hat and coat for cooler weather and/or weather-appropriate clothes for outdoor play (gumboots etc)

  • Nappy Cream


In order to keep children safe, please do not pack any food, medication, or other items that are unsafe for children to handle in your child's bag. As children can access all bags during the day, we want to reduce the risk of any incidents where children handle foods or other items.
