Our Philosophy


An Enrolment Form must be completed before a child can attend. This form must be renewed at the beginning of the new school year. To ensure all information on our records is correct and current, please inform the Centre as soon as possible of any changes during the year.  This is a legal requirement.


Children must be booked in on attendance days for their own safety and to enable the Centre to work within the correct staff/child ratios as per the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2012.  Bookings can be made direct to the Centre by phone: 9377 9290 or email  melanie.berrington@ggs.wa.edu.au.

In the event that a child is absent from school but has a booking, it is most important that parents notify the Centre that the child will not be attending, by 8.30am on the day. The Centre is not able to care for children who are ill. Parents/carers will be contacted if their child is unwell and are expected to have the child picked up as soon as practicable.

Bookings must be cancelled 24 hours prior to the date for After School Care.  In respect of vacation care there is a requirement to give a minimum of 24hrs notice of a non-attendance or in the case of sickness as soon as practically possible. If notification is not received prior to the commencement of the day concerned there will then be a 50% charge of the daily rate. Please note that cancellations must be made in writing to the Centre Coordinator.
