MEDIA RELEASE - Long day care enrolments fast approaching

23 Friday 2019

Looking to enrol your child in long day care in 2020? Glenelg Shire managed long day care centres will be accepting enrolments during 2 – 6 September 2019, the official Long Day Care Enrolment Week period.

Glenelg Shire Council children’s services manager Janine Johnstone encouraged families to start preparing their enrolment information.

“We are pleased to confirm that long day care programs will be delivered in three locations across the shire in 2020,” she said.
“Sessions will be offered at Dartmoor Children’s Centre, Karreeta Peeneeyt Mara Portland Child and Family Complex and Kathleen Millikan Centre in Casterton.

“I encourage all new and existing families to start considering the enrolment process prior to Enrolment Week. Please consider your session preferences and prepare the required documentation (e.g. Immunisation History), as well as any other supporting information. Due to demand and interest in long day care programs incomplete enrolments will not be accepted.”

Enrolment forms can be downloaded via the Glenelg Shire website from 9am 2 September. Administration staff will be available to assist with enrolment enquiries between 9am – 3pm during Enrolment Week at the following locations:
• Karreeta Peeneeyt Mara Portland Child and Family Complex – 94 Julia Street Portland
• Kathleen Millikan Centre – 1 Jackson Street Casterton
• Dartmoor Children’s Centre – 134 Lang Street Dartmoor (by appointment only. Appointments can be made by phone or email.)

Enrolment applications are due 5pm Friday 6 September.
