We’ve been offered a place – what happens now?

You’ll be sent an enrolment pack to complete and a copy of the Parent’s Handbook.

You’ll also be invited to come and meet with the Centre Coordinator to discuss your child’s needs and answer any questions that you have.

We understand that leaving your child in a childcare centre can be difficult, so we offer a comprehensive orientation process so that you and your child can visit KOTA prior to starting care to enable you to become familiar with our educators and the centre’s routines, and have time to get to know and trust us.
