Enrolment and Waitlist Procedure

At Wynnum Family Day Care & Education service we have a dedicated Family Liaison and Enrolment Coordinator member at the Placement Desk. She will take your initial enquiry and add your family details (including what you are looking for in an education and care setting) and add you to our waitlist. We will maintain regular contact with you to advise you of your position on the waitlist. Once we are able to offer you a placement, we will direct you to contact your prospective educator to arrange an interview to meet them. Once a placement is confirmed by the educator and the family you will be required to have an interview with a coordination unit team member to complete paperwork, provide your child’s immunisation record and pay the registration fee. You will be required to confirm the enrolment notice in MyGov to receive Child Care Subsidy (CCS).


Wynnum Family Day Care & Education Service encourages everyone to make sure their childcare vaccinations are up to date, however, Wynnum Family Day Care & Education Service does not cancel, refuse or place conditions on enrolment or attendance of children whose immunisations are not up to date. Each educator is required to nominate their service position.
