Please use our Application for Childcare to apply for childcare with us. You can apply for either Early Education Centres or Family Day Care or both.
Do not apply for childcare with us until after the birth of your child. We cannot accept applications for an unborn child.
Council has been providing early education and care services to the local community for more than 40 years. Our services and programs are industry leading, receiving recognition for their high quality. Our Family Day Care program and Dianella Street Early Education Centre in Caringbah were both state finalists in the 2015 Australian Family Early Education & Care Awards. Many of our Educators were also nominated in the awards by families who use their service.
Read our frequently asked questions and Terms and Conditions before you apply. These have been prepared to give you an understanding of how the childcare application process works at council. Importantly they also contain information about Australian Government requirements for priority placements of children which we must adhere to. Before applying it is better if you know what priority level your child and your family fall into.
