Centre Hours

Natural Elements Early Learning Centre is open from 6.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday.  We are open 52 weeks of the year and closed on all gazetted public holidays.  Please note fees are still payable on public holidays if it is your child’s regular day of attendance.

Arrival / Departure

Childcare licensing requires that all children be signed in on arrival and signed out on departure by their parent/guardian or an authorised person 18 years or older. Children must only be delivered or collected by persons as stated on the Enrolment Form, unless prior written arrangements are made with management. Parents who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be asked to nominate someone else to collect their child.  Please always make sure you tell the Educators you are taking your child.

Sign in files are kept in the room with the children at all times (in their respective age groups) and move with them during ‘Family’ grouping between 6.00am and 8.00am and 4.30pm and 6.00pm.

Due to the strict insurances and licence conditions to which we must adhere, a late fee of $2.00 per minute will be charged for parents who fail to collect their child/children by 6.00pm, unless in an emergency situation.  It is imperative that the centre opens and closes on time.
