Priority of Access Guidelines

We adhere to the Department of Education and Training (DET) priority of access guidelines as set out in section 6.3 of the Child Care Services Handbook.

  • Priority 1. A child at risk of serious abuse or neglect.
  • Priority 2. A child of a single parent who satisfies, or of parents who both satisfy the work, training, study test under section 14 of the A New  Tax system  (Family    Assistance) Act.1999
  • Priority 3. Any other child.

We will be giving priority to children attending our onsite schools.

If no vacancy exists, a waiting list operates.

Within these main categories, priority should be given to the following Children;

  • Children in Aboriginal or Torres Straight Islander families.
  • Children in families which include a disabled person.
  • Children in families on a low income.
  • Children in families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
  • Children in socially isolated families.
  • Children of single parents.

There are some circumstances in which a child who is already in a child care service may be required to leave the service.

Where a service has no vacant places and is providing child care for a child who is a priority 3 under the priority of access guidelines, the service may require that child to leave the child care service in order for the service to provide a place for a higher priority child, but only if:

  1. The person who is liable to pay child care fees in respect of the child was notified when the child first occupied the child care place that the service followed this policy
    and
  2. The service gives that person at least 14 days notice of the requirement for the child to leave the child care service.

When filling vacancies, outside school hours care services must give primary school children priority over children who have not yet started school. When an outside school hour’s care service has no vacant places and is providing care for a child who has not yet started school, the service may require that child to leave the service so that the service can provide a place for a primary school child.
