Our waitlist for long day care and 4yr old sessional kindergarten is managed under Moreland City Council’s ‘Central Registration System’.
To apply for a place at BBCC please access the application forms through the Moreland City Council website or the link below.
As a not-for-profit service, we endeavour to keep our fees as low as possible. Fees are determined each year based on budgeting requirements by the Committee of Management.
Current LDC fee is $128 per day.
Please note – Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is available to eligible families. It is highly recommended that families apply for CCS prior to care beginning to avoid having to pay full fees.
Applications for CCS can be accessed through your MyGov account.
In 2021 Sessional Kinder Programmes are free.
Priority of access
As an Approved Childcare Service, we are required to follow the Priority of Access Guidelines as determined by the Australian Government. Please be aware that families with a higher priority level will take precedence on waiting lists and with allocation of places. The Priority of Access guidelines set out the following three levels of priority:
Priority 1: a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect.
Priority 2: a child of a single parent who satisfies, or both parents who both satisfy, the work, training/study test.
Priority 3: any other child.
Within these main priority categories, priority will also be given to the following groups:
– Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families
– Families which include a disabled person
– Families on lower incomes
– Families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (e.g. non-English speaking)
– Socially isolated families
– Single parent families
