How do I join the waiting list?

Please note that we are currently fully booked for 2018. This means that, at this time, we have no positions available to offer. 

The best way to find out more about our centre is to book in for an information session. Look at the tour dates and times and contact us to book your position. 

Then all you need to do is complete the form and pay a $20 cash only application fee in person at the centre (correct change is required).

Please do not email your forms, bring them in with your payment, thank you. 
When enquiring about our waiting list email is the best method of contacting us - mrcwaitlist@bigpond.com 

When will I be offered a position and how do I secure it?

Whilst we welcome your enquiries about the waiting list, the chance is very minimal that a position will become available during 2018, but if this does occur we will contact you. 

You only need to contact us if you have a change of address or phone number.

We fill our waiting list according to Priority of Access guidelines. Then our existing children and siblings receive priority to increase and change days on our internal waiting list. We then offer positions to our external waiting list based upon date order from when forms are received. You will not be removed from our list unless you advise us or if you don’t return our annual request to update your family's situation on our waitlist.

We cannot predict when a vacancy will arise during the year as an existing family needs to drop a day for a position to come up. We can't always offer you the days that you are after. Sometimes a position becomes available for just one day per week, and the more flexible you are the higher the chance that you will receive a position at the centre.  

At least once a year we send follow up correspondence requesting an update to your family's childcare situation. You need to send this back to remain on the external waiting list. You will not need to pay another $20 when updating details.

Privacy Notice

Personal information will be managed openly and transparently in a way that protects an individual’s privacy and respects their rights under Australian privacy laws. 

We only collect or use personal information if this is needed to educate and care for children at the service or to comply with our legal obligations. We will take reasonable steps to make sure you know we have your personal information, how we got it and how we'll handle it.

We collect most personal information directly from a parent or guardian. We may also collect information through our website, Family Law court orders or agreements, special needs agencies and training courses. We may occasionally request information from other organisations which you would reasonably agree is necessary for us to educate and care for a child.

The information collected includes information required under the National Education and Care Law and Regulations or needed to promote learning under the Early Years Learning Framework.  This includes name, address, date of birth, gender, family contact details, emergency contact details, authorised nominee details, parents’ occupations, cultural background, home language, religious beliefs, payment details, CCB/CCS information, Medicare number, , immunisation records, medical information and medical management plans, photos of children and information about children’s strengths, interests, preferences and needs, including special needs. 

We do not disclose personal information to others unless you would reasonably expect us to do this, we have your consent or we are complying with an Australian law.

We aim to keep the personal information we hold accurate, up-to-date and complete. This enables us to provide high quality education and care while ensuring the health and safety of children, and it is also important that we can contact you in the event of an emergency.

We have systems and practices in place to ensure personal information is secure and can only be accessed by those who need the information or may legally access it.

You have the right to access your personal information. There are some circumstances under Australian privacy laws where we may not be able to give you access. We will tell you if this is the case. There is generally no cost for accessing your information. We will tell you if there is a charge before providing access.
