Our Child Care Service is registered with the Department of Early Childhood and Education.

Your child will be cared for in a fun, friendly, learning environment, by our qualified Early Childhood Educators.

During their time at Casey ARC Child Care, your children are learning to:

  • Develop a sense of their own identity within the broader community
  • Develop a feeling of belonging and understanding of others
  • Make choices and decisions that develop their own personal wellbeing
  • Become active and involved in many learning experiences
  • Become effective communicators

No Jab, No Play

By law, to finalise your child’s enrolment in our child care service you must provide the service with a completed enrolment form and an immunisation status certificate that shows your child is:

  • Up to date with vaccinations for their age OR
  • On a vaccine catch up schedule OR
  • Has a medical condition preventing them from being fully vaccinated.

What is an immunisation status certificate?

It is a statement showing the vaccines your child has received which is available from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register.

How do I get an immunisation status certificate?

Request an Immunisation History Statement from Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR)

Cancellation Policy

As of 1 November 2016 all Occasional Care bookings not attended or cancelled by 7.30am on the day, will incur a sessional care charge of $5.50. 

Due to the high demand for places in the 1st and 2nd sessions it is important, as a courtesy to families and staff, that all bookings are cancelled if you are unable to attend. This allows other families to use the space and staffing to be arranged accordingly.
