Long Day Care

Care for pre-schoolers from Monday to Friday

Long day care services provide care and education for children from birth to school age, including before and after school care. 

Services operate for at least 10 hours a day from Monday to Friday for a minimum of 48 weeks each year.

Children are usually grouped together according to their age and developmental stage. Some long day care services offer a kindergarten program.

All early childhood education and care services will charge a fee to look after your child, but most long day care services are approved for Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.
