We would love to meet you and let you experience first-hand a MercyCare Early Learning Centre. Below are some things to consider:
Government Subsidies can take up to 28 days to process, so when you’re thinking about child care it’s a good idea to organise government assistance first. To see if you qualify for government assistance, there is a subsidy calculator you can use to gauge your estimated entitlement.
Your enrolment pack
Our centre manager will pass on an enrolment pack at your tour of the centre. This will include everything you need to know about our centres, what to expect and all relevant fees.

Easing into childcare
We offer orientation days for your child so they can get to know our educators, and we can get to know them.
Allowing a child time to familiarise themselves with the centre, children in their room and the educators means a much smoother transition when you and your child are ready to start.
Parents can never provide too much information about their child to our educators. After all, it is the details parents provide about their child’s preferences and personalities that make settling that child in to child care a much smoother process.
An orientation visit provides little ones with a transition into child care and parents an opportunity to actually see how the day runs and an insight into the learning programs. It is also a great opportunity for our educators to get to know the child’s individual routine and a little more about them.
We ask questions like, ‘how do you like to put your child to sleep?’ and ‘what types of things do you like to do with your child?’. We want to know what works for them, because what matters to you, matters to us.
