Waiting List

To place a child’s name on the waiting list you will need to contact the centre directly to arrange a suitable time and date for a visit.   

By filling in the application at the centre your child’s name has been placed on our waiting list.

It is important to note the date of the visit for further correspondence as this will enable your details to be found efficiently.

By placing your child’s name on the list, your child will be considered for enrolment at the commencement of a new year. Should a position become available at another time you will be contacted (usually on mobile) and an offer will be made. You have 24 hours to consider our offer and respond. If we do not hear from you we will assume that you DO NOT want the position and the details removed from the waiting list. Please ensure contact details are correct and updated.

Positions are usually offered around September the year prior to starting, although this may vary.

Once an offer is made and an acceptance given, a deposit needs to be paid to secure the position.

Deposits are NOT REFUNDABLE if you change your mind and do not take the position from when it is available.

At St Jude’s Early Learning an application for Waiting List can only be made after the birth of a child. We cannot accept an application prior to this.


Our daily rate is $132.00 for 2021.

Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is available for those who are eligible through Department of Human Services (Centrelink or Medicare Offices) and the myGov website.
