Child Care Waiting Lists

There are often situations where there are no places or vacancies at a child care centre you wish to use. Some centres have waiting lists to help determine the next placement should a spot become available. Where demand for child care is high, all approved services with the exception of Occasional Care must adhere to Priority of Access Guidelines to ensure sure is a fair child care system. The system ensures that places are allocated to families with the greatest need for child care. These guidelines only apply to Child Care Benefit approved child care services with the exception of Occasional Care.
