Childcare centres

Childcare centres care for children aged between 6 weeks and 5 years old. Children may attend the centre on a full time, part time or occasional care basis, depending on the centre's policy.

Centres may be privately run or administered by a community organisation or committee.  All centres must be licensed and are carefully regulated by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

Children are usually grouped in separate rooms according to age, or may be cared for in family groupings of mixed ages.
