Operating hours and days
The Centre is open for a maximum of 49 weeks a year, from 7.30am – 5.45pm. If your working hours necessitate that your child must be at the Centre until late, we ask that you arrive no later than 5.40pm in order to give you time to collect your child’s belongings and to talk to staff regarding your child’s day.
Maryland Care and Early Education Centre is closed on ALL gazetted public holidays. Fees are not payable on public holidays. If your child’s day happens to be a public holiday, that day of care cannot be rescheduled as we are a permanent place centre.
Extra days are only available if a parent has notified the Centre about their child’s absence with prior notice or on the morning of their absence. You may leave your name with the office if you are interested in picking up an extra day to make up for the one you missed. The office will contact you if a place becomes available.
The Director is available to assist you on Monday to Friday with enrolment enquiries. You may make an appointment to discuss any concerns you have about your child or the Centre. Generally the Director is available between 9am and 5pm.
The Director is happy to discuss any questions you may have about our service.
