Centre Construction Update - March 2018

Leichhardt Park Children’s Centre construction has been has been completed. Formal opening of the service will be expected in the second half of 2018.

Council is required to seek Service Approval from the Department of Education and Communities, prior to opening.

Please note from July 2018, Australia will have a new child care package providing more support for families. During this development period, all new providers are unable to obtain CCS approval, which will affect the opening date of the service.

Enrolments will commence once approval has been granted. All positions will be offered in accordance to our priority access guideline, and in conjunction with each child's registered date via my waitlist.
