Early Learning Services

Types of Early Learning Services available 

We provide a range of child care options for the Moonee Valley community.

There are three different types of child care services available:

  • Long day care
  • Occasional child care
  • Family day care (home-based care)

You may register your child in a Council or other non-council service. A Central Registration Service is available for Council managed child care services.

The Child Care Subsidy (fee subsidy) is available to most families to reduce program costs.

Support services are also available for children with additional needs.

Council long day care

We offer full or part time long day care for children from birth to six years, generally operating across a range of Monday to Friday from 7am-6.15pm.

All Council long day care centres have achieved a Quality Standards rating in delivery of quality educational programs which can be found on the Australian Children Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) website.

Please note: there is an enrolment fee of $35 per child.

Kindergarten in child care

All our long day care services offer kindergarten and child care together in the one centre, often with Maternal and Child Health and family support services.

Early childhood qualified teachers deliver kindergarten Monday to Friday.

Occasional child care

Occasional child care for children from Birth to six years is provided on a casual basis for up to 5 hours per day and 15 hours per week.

Family day care

Family day care is delivered in homes by qualified educators for children in small groups from birth to secondary. Visit the family day care page for more information.
