Enrol Your Child
When you are seeking family day care for your child, we know how important it is for you to feel comfortable with the person providing the care for your child and to feel confidence and trust in the registered agency – CatholicCare. You can be assured that we train and support our Family Day Care educators, we undertake regular monitoring and we are available if you have queries or concerns, to ensure you have peace of mind in leaving your child in care.
On initial registration, you may be placed on a waitlist. When you are added to our waitlist, we ask for details such as the days you require, your child’s age, location care is needed etc. This enables us to match your needs with the educators who may have a vacancy. You can update your details and change your requirements at any time and we will maintain contact with you. You can contact us at any time to update or discuss the placement.
Our staff will look at your needs and find the best match with an educator or educators who have a vacancy. You will be given details of the educator/s. You and your child can visit the educator for a tour of their environment, program and discuss your expectations of care.
When you have chosen an educator, you will be asked to contact the Coordination Unit to arrange enrolment paperwork to be sent to you. The Coordination Unit will provide you with a copy of service policies, advice on Government assistance and settling your child into care and answer any questions you may have.
Prior to commencing care, families must provide a copy of their child’s immunisation records. One of the following documents is to be provided:

You can get a copy of your child’s immunisation details through Medicare Online Services or by calling the Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.
