Book your ECCE place online today

This year our enrolment process is a bit different than normal.  Because our centres are currently closed due to Covid 19 restrictions and ‘calling in’ is not an option, we have made it easy for you to reserve your child’s place and pay you booking deposit below. In order for us to comply fully with appropriate social distancing measures, the number of places available for 2020 may be limited and are filling fast.

Terms & Conditions:
ECCE deposits are refunded once your child is fully registered for the ECCE Scheme on the Department of Children and Youth Affairs Hive platform and receives their ECCE registration number. If your child does not enrol within the first week of the ECCE start date the place will not be held and the deposit is non refundable. Bookings are only valid once all information on the booking form has been completed in full and returned to Grovelands Childcare.
