Hotham Day Care is licensed to cater for up to 26 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. 

 

Check In and Check Out 

Upon arrival at the centre, 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.
Pick up and drop off times are flexible within your program operational times.

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.  

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