Following the Victorian Government easing of restrictions, Daycare will be available from Friday 30 July, 2021.

Catering to our youngest guests, Hotham Daycare runs all through the winter season. Our Daycare is available to ages three months to five years.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, our Daycare will be operating for the 2021 snow season on reduced capacity. We are currently only offering full day care, which can be booked online. Half day care may become available during the season where capacity allows. We recommend booking in advance to secure your preferred dates as Daycare may sell out during peak periods.


Please note, if your child is unwell, even if symptoms are very mild, they should stay home. They should not attend Daycare until they have recovered.  For more information, please follow the Department of Health advice.

Hotham Day Care is licensed to cater for children between the ages of three months and five years and is approved by the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. It is renowned for its specialised and professional care; providing qualified and experienced staff that strive to meet each child’s individual needs. A morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack will be included.

Daycare will be open 8.30am-4.30pm for the 2021 season.

Check In and Check Out

Upon arrival at the centre for drop off any time from 8.30am, families will be greeted by a member of staff. Families will be asked how their child is feeling and be offered the choice of taking their child into the designated playroom, or having a member of staff take them. Families will be asked how their child slept the night before, as well as any other information to help the child enjoy their day.
All allergies, medication, illnesses and other specific needs MUST be recorded upon enrolment and verbally notified to Day Care staff.
Children may only leave the Centre with the designated parent/s or guardian/s as stipulated on the child's enrolment form and the Attendance Record Sheet.

No Jab, No Play

As of January 1st 2016, the "No Jab, No Play" legislation came into effect. We will now require evidence your child is fully immunised for their age. 

An Immunisation Status Certificate will need to be produced before your child can attend Hotham Daycare. The Immunisation Status Certificate can be obtained through your Medicare Online Account or local Medicare service centre.  

Daycare must be booked online and paid for 24 hours in advance due to limited positions. Payment is required to confirm your position. Please fill in the Enrolment Form and return it via email to Hotham Daycare.
