Waiting List / Enrolment

To secure a place on Nipperville's Waiting List you can access the form here, or contact Nipperville directly to organise a suitable time to visit.

Once you have been placed on our Waiting List we encourage families to keep in touch regularly and notify us of any changes.

Once the Nominated Supervisor has offered your child a place, an enrolement package will be made available. 

Nipperville follows the Priority of Access Guidelines set by the Family Assistance Law. When filling vacant places, we must fill them according to the following priorities:

Priority 1 -  a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect
Priority 2 -  a child of a single parent/both parents who satisfy the work, training & study test
Priority 3 -  any other child

Within these main Priority categories, priority should also be given to children in: 

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families
  • Families which include a disabled person
  • Families with an individual on a low income or on income support
  • Families from a non-English speaking background
  • Socially isolated families
  • Single parent families

Fees

On enquiry at the centre you will be given information outlining the fee structure and the method of payment. To be placed on our Waiting List, we require a $50 deposit which is non refundable.  Once you are offered a position, we require two weeks fees in advance prior to commencing care.  Fees are reviewed twice a year and adjusted accordingly in the months of January and July. When reviewing all aspects of the centre budget, we take into account increases in Government charges, food, utilities, wages and equipment.
